Those changes result in a black screen with a blinking cursor in the 
upper left corner.

Ctrl-Alt-Del powers down as per configuration,  and Alt-Fn will switch 
to a functional VT.  Otherwise the keyboard appears to be ignored.

So while not elegant, they work.  I basically have Kubuntu installed 
beside Gentoo to test it and use it as a backup for times when I stuff 
my Gentoo system.

The old Red Hat way of doing things is gone, and it's a rather steep 
learning curve to catch up.

Dragged kicking and screaming into the present...
