Question Console not using the full screen...

Hi all,

I'm running 6.06 and have a problem with the text in the console. When I hit Alt+F1 to go to a virtual terminal, the text looks like it is in widescreen mode--there's no text at the top of the screen.

Is there a setting to fix this problem? I previously had 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehod) isntalled. Hoary didn't have a graphical boot up screen however.

Any suggestions?
