My workstation is windoz xp.

Like using the screen command for more than one other session gets rather 
complex, not to mention tedious.

The alt-fk swapping of virtual consoles is just what I'm looking for, only 
with the convenience of one physical location. Hmm, I do use WinVNC to 
operate the desktop of 3 other windoz machines from the convenience of my 
own workstation; albeit maybe this is (sort of) no different than using SSH.

Truth be told Malcolm I installed my fbsd box one week ago and am thrilled 
to have as much working as I do. With Perl, Apache, PostgreSQL and Lynx 
along with the ability to SSH and FTP in I can pretty much get to work 
moving my local web development environment from my workstation to my fbsd 
box. Once I get Samba working I can do so conveniently. It's not the way I 
would've said a week ago I was going to spend my time but it is time well 
spent I think.
