Change TTYs In Linux To Debug

I have found this useful while doing a kickstart install. Being able to change your terminal when an irrecoverable error shows up is very useful.

The way to get to other terminal types is to use a combination of: Ctrl+Alt+F-key

Here's the functions of some of them:
Ctrl+Alt-F1 - The installation dialog when using text or cmdline 
Ctrl+Alt-F2 - A shell prompt
Ctrl+Alt-F3 - The install log displaying messages from install program
Ctrl+Alt-F4 - The system log displaying messages from kernel, etc.
Ctrl+Alt-F5 - All other messages 
Ctrl+Alt-F7 - The installation dialog when using the graphical installer
