this is my feedback report.

I have run points 1 to 7. Now, when I switch to tty-1 (Ctrl-Alt-F1), I
got a 640x480 screen on which is displayed the boot sequence until
"running local boot scripts..", then the cursor is blinking and I cannot
enter anything . The other ttys are completely blank. If I try to go
back to tty-7, the computer freezes and I have to hard reset.

Concerning your suggestion to go to the forums, I will do it for sure (as I always did in the past), but I believe this is a BUG and not a misuse of the OS. Since warty I always had my ttys and I was used to use them very often (before Gutsy...).
