Framebuffer cursor

Got a bit of a trickey problem, maybe someone here can help...

I am using a laptop with fb800x600 mode on and it works great. I want to edit the cursor so it is underlined and not a full block cursor which is the default in both knoppix and DSL (Damn small linux).

Everywhere I go seems to assert that the default is acctually an underlined cursor, but obviously it is not (at least on my hardware).

I have tried:
echo -e '\033[?2c'

To no effect, a similar command using echo to set the cursor as non blinking red block works fine, so I'm pretty sure I'm using the echo command correctly - just that it is somehow not supported or something.

Anybody have any ideas??
