Linux (text-based ubuntu, backtrack, trinity, etc) - How to: Open a new terminal window

I use a variety of linux distributions including ubuntu server (no GUI), backtrack, trinity rescue kit, among others.

The common denominator is that they are all text-based... at least that way that I use them.

My terminology may be a bit off, but each of these linux distros boots into a single teriminal window - is there some keyboard shortcut to open and display a new terminal session? Is there some way to jump between the open terminal "windows" or sessions?
