Console Terminal (Ctrl-F1)

I need to run an application, on my FC4, but when I try to execute it under GNome Terminal the application tells me that it can't be run on graphical mode.

Due to this I tried to use a console terminal (Ctrl-F1) but my computer goes blank when I do this.

Is there a way to enable those terminals (F1-F6, F8-F12) ?

Because they run LINUX on text mode, which is what I need to install this package.

I've never really used FC but ctrl+alt+bksp kills x, FC might restart it though. ctrl+f# should work, I don't see why it would be disabled. You could also set ur computer to not boot into graphical mode and manually startx when you turn it on. I prefer it that way anyways.
