This is it.
user xyz logs in
his x session runs whatever term - I use gnome-terminal
edit config and use gconf-editor (applies to gnome-terminal) to get the display you want (colour, font, size, (no)border etc
At login you are presented with a full screen cli with your selected settings
I wanted to automate and replicate the process hence the ummm gconftool-2 stuff above.
The fiddly bits are dependant on your window manager
I use auto-login
