http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/smaller-console-... raises the issue of how do I set, at boot, the resolution of my consoles (tty's); not just during boot, but for afterwards too.

This got me thinking about a chart of the "vga=" codes that are available.

Googling:
"VGA Resolution" Chart
got these 2 useful answers:
