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.

I chmod the pts folder to 666 but that didn't do anything for me. Thanks for
