During installation of NetBSD 2.0.2, I opted to install the bios
console.  I've noticed, though, that the "F keys" will work in mc on the
virtual terminals (Alt-F2, Alt-F3, etc) but not on the console at Alt-
F1.  I am using standalone-tcsh as my shell.

My questions are:

1. Is there any advantage to having the console on Alt-F1?

2. How can I send the console back to the serial port and have the
first virtual terminal on Alt-F1 once the system is already installed?
