Here's what I am trying to do:

I don't want UML to start any consoles (xterms) by default. I also want to control how many consoles (xterms) are started, and their color, geometry, etc at run time. Is that possible?

I was able to tell UML to not start any consoles (xterms) by commenting out the appropriate lines in /etc/inittab. (Is that the right approach?)

I tried using mconsole to start consoles (mconsole command: config con1=xterm), but that wouldn't work! No xterms were spawned! Nothing happened.

So, please help me out with this problem.

Thanks in advance for all your help.
