If you're using a 640x480 screen, try using the following command:
	stty rows 34 columns 80
or for a smaller screen:
	stty rows 34 columns 85

You can put this in your .cshrc or .profile (depending on the shell that
you're using).

It is and it isn't.  Theoretically, we could add several entries to the
termcap and use these for the consoles, but that would still require a
change between the small and large screens (fonts).

Anyway...  Hope this helps.
