Add TTYs in Fedora 9+, Plus More!

[ Thanks to slonkak for this link. ]

"I walked over to a student's computer to see what error he was receiving and then proceeded back to my computer. I told them to skip taht part and I would quickly figure it out and tell them what file they needed to edit. Fat chance. I spent about 5 minutes trying to figure out how to add another TTY all while talking them through what I was doing: restarting init, checking the log, cross-referencing errors on the Internet, etc. I'm not the type of professor who will waste the students' time (I know I hated that when I took classes), so I gave them some options. Either they could forget about this part of the assignment and not lose any points, or they could figure out how to add tty8 before the final exam and earn extra credit."
