instant switch from GUI to text mode?


Is there a way, in SuSE 9.1, to instantly switch out of GUI into text mode? I know that in RedHat you can hit F7 or something and it will instantly take you from the GUI to command line interface, and you can switch back just as easily.

How can you do this in SuSE?

Ctl-ALT-F1 is 1st tty
Ctl-ALT-F2 .. Ctl-ALT-F6 are more tty

Ctl-ALT-F7 is 1st X session
