Actually, it's hogwash for RedHat and I imagine Slackware as well.  Just 
because you don't hear the prompt when you switch to the VC doesn't mean 
it isn't there.  When I boot up, I move through all six VC's logging in 
without pressing return first.  I wish folks would be a bit more careful 
about what they post.
