You can dynamically change the font/size to any font in /lib/kbd/consolefonts/. For example:
Code:
setfont -v arm8.fnt

You can try:
Code:
locate consolefonts

or

locate alt-8x16.gz
You should be able to find where the fonts are stored on your distribution.

If it's of any help, on Debian it's found here: /usr/share/consolefonts
