Computer Change SCO - GUI or Desktop interface to DOS based interface

Hi all

I have installed a demo version of SCO OpenServer 5.0.2, I finally found it is Desktop Interface, I would like to know how to change its interface to dos based interface?

There are 12 desktops available.
Press <ctrl><alt><F1> thru <F12> for each one. By default <F2> is the graphical interface, the other 11 are 80x25 text.
<F1> is the also the console, where system error messages may also be sent.

IIRC, the change from GUI to command line is handled by modification of /etc/init in the activation line for tty01.
Switching between the 12 ttys on the console keyboard is normally [ALT][Fkey] but getting out of the GUI on tty01 requires [CTRL][ALT][Fkey].
