setterm is the command you will want to use. Unfortunately I'm not in front of a linux box now and I can't remember exactly how. See man setterm and you should be able to do it. To make it permanent, write setterm command with it's options to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local (or /etc/init.d/rc.local or /etc/rc.d/init.d/rc.local or whatever it is in your distribution).
