no virtual consoles therefore no login!

I've just finished installing LFS4.0  - good instructions BTW.
Initially no problems booting, everything seemed fine.

Rebooted into Mandrake8.1 (the host build system), did some fiddling on the 
internet, then tried to reboot into lfs.  Kernel boots fine, init does its 
runlevel stuff (default 3), but then no VC's are created and I can't login.

Any ideas?  The only thing that I've added to the LFS4.0 setup is gpm 
(mouse support) and midnight commander.  Can't see that they are the 
problem though.
