Thanks for your feedback at the last MUUG meeting about the problem I had
with Control+C droping someone to a shell prompt in the forst TTY.

I had a google group thread here if you want to read/respond there:

I changed the line in /etc/inittab from:
1:2345:respawn:/bin/bash -login > /dev/tty1 2>&1 < /dev/tty1
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1

and that solves to problem of getting to a shell but now X Windows doesn't

I don't fully understand what the orig line is doing and I think that's my

Any help would be appreciated.
