IBM-ThinClients Netvista...howto access a console?


Hello

We're using IBM Netvista N2200e-CX2-thinclients to access our win2k-citrix-terminal server, everything works well with their 32mbytes flash card. Now we wanted to install vncserver additionally, but these problems appear:
  • - not any pdf-manual provided by ibm just !mentions! how to access a console...
    - alt&ctrl&F[x] doesn't work an alt&F[x] doesn't either..... I can just access the built-in gui... but not a console
    - there are possibilies to update the client with a bom-file on the server, but i couldn't see a possibity to install a simple service like vncserver manually
now, I haven't got any idea anymore.... ibm mentioned that these clients are running turbolinux... I don't intend to install another new linux on it (cause the flash card covers just 32mbytes).....here my questions:
  • 1. does anybody know a howto,...that tells how to access a local console on the clients...?
    2. did anyone of you already try to install a service manually on a IBM N2200X-xxx?
    3. are there probably any fixed bom-files including vncserver (it doesn't matter what linux-distribution...it just has to work...) on the internet that are provided for downloading?
ibm doesn't provide any configured bom-files and google doesn't help me either....
regards&thanks for all advices

Well I ahve never seen one of these machines but have you tried pressing "Ctrl+Alt+F1"?

xterm
eterm
konsole
