Changing default console font

I decided to set a different default console font during the Slack 9 install, and now when I am logged in but am not in X, if I do an ls or do anything that carries the cursor past the bottom of the screen, then I can no longer see what I am typing, as if the screen is not scrolling far enough to keep up. How can I change the default console font, and what is a good one to change it to?

Nevermind. The problem was with the Monitor entry in my XF86Config file, found it and fixed it. It wasn't the default console font at all.
