Scroll buffer size in terminal window


I am using a CDE that I think is from GNU. Using redhat linux.

How do I increase the scroll buffer size of the default terminal window that comes up in bash (bourne again shell) it only scrolls up two screens worth of data.

Thanks

I did a ps -elf but the column I'm used to seeing in unix that tells the name is missing. How else do I identify the emulator name?

In that case the option is
-sl <number of lines>
(with a default of 64) ... how to make that into CDEs settings
I cannot tell.



Cheers,
Tink
