How many console lines do you have?  Are you running SVGATextMode (note
the casing of that)?  Check the contents of /etc/TextConfig,
particularly of the the section around 

    Option "LoadFont"

...which describes console fonts.

You may try running /usr/bin/setfont with various fonts under
/usr/share/consolefonts.  I find best results with the lat1u-16 series
