I do mix'n'match as I don't know how to set up multiple sessions yet. When in  
root, I su in Konsole to use irc, and su in xterm when in user mode to 
configure more stuff from user. I can't startx for multiple console logins, 
only one can be active.

Even chasing around the web, the problem is common, but the solution isn't!
I chmod the pts folder to 666 but that didn't do anything for me. Thanks for 
trying Ken!
