038. I would like to have more lines and/or columns displayed when I use the text consoles. Is there a way I can do this?

Yes. If you are using LILO to boot your system then you can do it by inserting the vga option in your /etc/lilo.conf file. For example a line saying "vga=ask" will let you choose the text mode at boot time (type "man lilo.conf" for more details). Don't forget to rerun /sbin/lilo after you modify /etc/lilo.conf . Alternatively you could get the SVGATextMode program by anonymous ftp from <ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/linux/utils/console/>.
