I guess you're using Gnome and the Gnome terminal. In KDE the Konsole (KDE's terminal) has a menu item called "Settings" (the menus run along just below the top band of the terminal window). In settings you can change the font and/or the font size. Just click on the Font item in the Settings menu (if gnome has a similar set up).
Cheers,
jdk

Sorry Eric. Since I've never used or seen Redhat I can't help you there.
