What is /dev/vc


Hello,
I've installed slackware 12.2 on my laptop, and sudenly instead of /dev/tty[0-9], I see /dev/vc/[0-9]. On my PC the tty's are fine, but on my laptop they are not.
What is this, and how can I turn it back to /dev/tty*

Ok. I've edited : /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules

from:
#TTY devices
KERNEL=="console", NAME="%k", GROUP="tty", MODE="0600"
KERNEL=="tty", NAME="%k", GROUP="tty", MODE="0666"
KERNEL=="tty[0-9]*", NAME="vc/%n", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="tty"

to:
#TTY devices
KERNEL=="console", NAME="%k", GROUP="tty", MODE="0600"
KERNEL=="tty", NAME="%k", GROUP="tty", MODE="0666"
#KERNEL=="tty[0-9]*", NAME="vc/%n", SYMLINK="%k", GROUP="tty"

Can I espect some troubles? System looks fine.
