To Studboy:

I am sorry that I chose to 'close the question' instead of getting you
the chance to 'officially answer' question #143184. Not familiar with
the rule. So here is the question again. Please simply 'officially
answer' it so that you can get paid.

Dear ga1000-ga

That's OK.  I'm glad I can help.

This is regarding the equivalent of getty on linux--
the equivalent of getty is agetty--the man pages shows it's usage:

man agetty

It has the same syntax as getty: 
agetty <line> <rate> <termtype> 
s0:23456:/sbin/agetty ttyM0 DT19200 wy60 
Also, try doing a search on getty or agetty on the net--Google engine is best 
when it comes to technical stuff.  There are several varieties of getty: 
getty, getty_ps, mgetty, vgetty, agetty, ... 
Also, you can even run (a)getty on your Windows--it's part of the 
cygwin package ( along with the source code if interested.

Thanks again!
