Just my 2cents worth for now...

- This should be common knowledge. On most keyboard mappings, the control
key modifies ascii characters to subtract '64' hence allowing values in the
range 0-31 to be entered
  A-Z give 1-26, but also note that in ascii: @ preceeds A, and Z is
followed by   [\]^_`

- for F-keys over a serial line <cntl-F> followed by the digit often works
if <esc>digit doesn't

- for /etc/inittab I would use agetty rather than mingetty for serial
consoles, the latter only seems to work reliably for slow baudrates.



Yours,
Daniel.
