Question No virtual console terminals in FC4

I've installed FC4 in 3 of P4/925gvwb boxes with onboard vedeo adapters, but the 1-6 virtual terminals shows nothing but a black screen when i am trying thm after X is started. But everything is fine with the grphical console. i've checked the /etc/X11/xorg.conf for an entry like:

# Option "DontVTSwitch" But i couldn't find it....!!!!

anyone of you have any idea...ummm...???

I don't mean to be annoying. I'm not even really sure what your problem is. Is the problem 'you can't access a terminal from your graphical X environment?' Is the problem 'you aren't able to access a bash/tty environment before you start X windows?'

Here's the part that might annoy you. Try installing xorg. Unless you have some esoteric ATI card that can only be supported with old xfree drivers then there is no benefit to using xfree.
