If you do a 'ps -e' listing on the Plug, you'll see 5 gettys on tty2-6.  On a conventional box, these would be accessible from the keyboard/monitor via CTRL-ALT-F2 thru CTRL-ALT-F6.  (I'm presuming the Plug's console, ttyS0, is analagous to tty1, normally found at CTRL-ALT-F1.)

Does anyone know if it is possible to access these extra tty devices on the Plug, and if so, how?  Is there any advantage to keeping these gettys around, or should I just disable them?
