Define "nice" :-) It's possible to change the console font from huge to
civilized (don't remember how; last time I did that, it involved some
secret numbers on a grub menu line, I think), but you can't specify a
*really* nice variable spaced, anti-aliased PS1/TT font, AFAIK.
I bite the bullet and use X to get scrolling. Being able to get to those
2000 lines that just flew by can make life a lot easier.
