If after running all of S* start in rc3.d/ I do telinit 3, instead of getting 
a console with a login prompt (which announces Fedora 13 :-O ), KDM starts, 
and all other ttys are void of login prompts. I tried yum reinstall mingetty, 
but that didn't cause any apparent change.

This is S* in /etc/rc3.d/:

Shouldn't there be something in there starting gettys, like a fbset? RPM 
query found no installed fbset package, but yum install fbset (2.1.29.fc12 
???) didn't add anything to /etc/rc3.d/, or help anything I could tell.
