With all due respect Craig, the ctrl-alt-F2 to get another screen has yet to 
give me a shell on that screen, _if_ it gives me a 2nd screen, which 90% of 
the time doesn't happen, those key combos  are ignored by nash.  For the new 
bee, there simply does not exist any method to get around fedoras use of a 
broken disk partitioning tool unless it has been fixed _since_ F10.
