Starting a server on boot- Running it in VT5?

I have a server I'm trying to start, and I'm wondering if it is possible to execute a script (on start, from an init.d script) in a VT, such as VT5.

I have the script nearly made. I'm trying to run "screen sleep 15; /serverdir/" but screen just makes init finish in the newly created screen, and the server I'm trying to start starts up in VT1.

So is there a command that I can run that starts the server in VT5 and keeps init going normally? Possibly running this as a script?
