would it be possible to implement something like Ctrl-Alt-Shift-X
which opens an Xterm in text mode. Of course not a new "window", just
replacing the current window with a shell. While it's no problem to
switch to another console with Alt-Fx in VGA mode, this is not
possible when installing on a serial console.

Sometimes, especially with old SLES releases, it's also possible that
the network card doesn't work during installation, so using VNC or SSH
is not always an option (of course there's the possibility that you
add drivers before installation, but it's not that simple). It would
be cool to get a shell also in that cases to debug something.



Thanks,
   Bernhard
