comment Why do I have no TTY on a basic Ubuntu 9.10 server install?
xconsole is unimportant; it's meant as a buffer for the xconsole utility from x11-apps, and isn't created in ubuntu. You can remove it from /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf.

comment Set up sftp to use password but ssh not to use password
This isn't well documented, but only one Match directive will be used; you should put the most specific directive on top. If you list sftp first, a user who is in both groups will be allowed PasswordAuthentication.

comment Set up sftp to use password but ssh not to use password
@dar OK; different accounts then. If they were the same account, someone knowing the sftp password could overwrite some profile file (.ssh/rc, .profile, .bashrc…) and get the same privileges as someone knowing the private key.
