Fonts really ugly

I am using slackware. And the menu where they ask me to choose a video or something was like 80x25 and so on and I chose 80x60. Now my fonts look really ugly. How do I get back to that menu so I can rechoose it? (it is the menu where it asks to push enter for video or space to continue and it gives a 30 second timer). Thanks in advance.

You could be reffering to the XF86Config setup, Were you using a window manager (GUI) when you had that menu or was it in a console?

Run xf86config and see if that is where you were at, if not hit Ctrl-c to exit

80*25 sounds more like console to me. Edit your /etc/lilo.conf vga = <something> to vga = normal and run lilo after saving the file. Reboot and you will have a normal console. You can play with the settings in the file to fit your needs. My setting is vga = 791 .
