Depending on your distro, you may have several virtual consoles assigned to
the keys Ctrl-Alt-F1 to Ctrl-Alt-F6, with Ctrl-Alt-F7 always being the
virtual console from which KDM/X11 has been launched. Very handy if you are
switching between users when X is down.
Or you could try running Konsole which gives you a console within KDE with all
the configurability you'd expect from a KDE app, it even has tabbed sessions.
