Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i need to know a command to switch from X to a console. I need something with the same effect of: "Ctrl+Alt+F#" (with #=1,2,....,n); but as i need to put this command into a bash script file, it must be an istruction not a sequence of keystroke.
Thanks at all in advance.

some kernels/distros disable certain terminals, such as slackware and only the 6th terminal is available for use. Hope this helps
Of course...thanks for your post. Anyway i know this feature, but i'm looking for a "command" that has the same effect of Ctrl+Alt+F# , where #=1,...,6
but that i could put that instruction into a script. (Ctrl+Alt+F# is a keystroke. I cannot put a keystroke into a bash-script)
I hope to be clear this time.
Sorry for my bad english...and thanks in advance for your replies.
