Aaah, now I understand what you've describing (tiny screen, not tiny
fonts) - check your BIOS for an "expand screen" type option. I can't
remember the exact terminology but there's something similar in my
Thinkpads (and I'm too lazy to look).
If that't the case, then the BIOS setting and console-setup is the
solution, in which case ignore my previous suggestion.
