If you don't mind leeching off The Evil Empire, install the
msttcorefonts package. Andale mono is a nice looking monospace
scalable truetype font. One nice feature is it clearly distinguishes 
"O" and "0" as well as "l" and "1", 

Since you are running Hi-Res on a small screen make sure that you have
your monitor's dpi or DisplaySize specified in XF86Config so that the
font server can make sense of the pointsizes. And here I was thinking
that 1400x1040 on a 15" screen was small...
