[ubuntu] Change default tty from tty7 (GUI) to tty2

http://ubuntuforums.org – Anyone know how to change the default tty? I've made some changes to /etc/init/tty2.conf to make tty2 run a script at boot, but the script is interactive and I need tty2 to show on boot instead of the regular tty7 (GUI). On other distros, I was able to at least simulate this by adding "/bin/chvt 2" to rc.local, but in Ubuntu, this seems to work for a second and then immediately switches back to tty7. What controls which tty is the default one? Or is this hard coded somewhere? (Hardware)
