I finally completed the basic installation and have a bootable kernel and yaboot for my powerbook but I can't seem to get another virtual console which I was able to do on the liveCD.

I kinda like to have use of the other consoles to make it easier to install the rest of the system.

Did you compile support for them into the kernel ?

Well, I'm using genkernel on this one right now.

What are the name of the relevant kernel variables?

I don't recall having to do anything special when I configured gentoo-sources on my x86 machines to use virtual consoles.
