Howto add more consoles?

Default FREESCO starts 2 consoles that can be accessed via the keyboard attached directly to your FREESCO box with ALT-F1 and ALT-F2 (under ALT-F3 runs the system log, and ALT-F4 is the login history)

If you want to always have extra consoles whenever you restart your machine, edit the file /rc/rc_init and under the line:

daemon - "agetty 9600 tty2" &

Add more commands of a similar syntax but using tty5, tty6, tty7 and / or tty8, then reboot. These new consoles will then be added every time your FREESCO machine starts and can be accessed using ALT-F5 through ALT-F8.
