you could start HLDS and place a & at the end of the startup command. IE
hlds &
that should do the trick. It will basically tell it to run in the back ground. also you can switch between terminals by hitting alt+ctrl+f# key. # being I think 1-6 maybe. Not sure just started picking up and using linux again.

I heavily recommend screen. Screen is basically equivalent to a window manager for the command line - it allows you to create and manage multiple screens. If you decide to try it, Ctrl+a ? will show you the help page.
