Console video mode


Just installed MDK 10.0. Looks excellent - but I have a rather simple question:

When I had 9,2 running, I had a much better console (NOT in X) resolution (smaller text, more lines per screen). Now the text is quite large and I'd like the other way back.

Can anyone please advise where to look/which file to change? Thanks.

Russ

I use lilo and it's /etc/lilo.conf (vga = 773) - I assume Mandrake's grub but I figure that's still where it is - grub.conf, I guess.
