I'm running Redhat 8 on a thinkpad 600 (264545u) and am 
wondering how to change the size of my console (virtual 
terminal?) Right now it is 80x25, but it's in the middle of 
the screen, I can hit the Fn-F8 key combo to expand the 
screen but that isn't my ideal solution. I've done some 
googling and found out how to change it if I'm using LILO 
but I'm using GRUB and can't find any relevant information. 
I've found a package called SVGATextMode but I'm not sure if 
that is what I want either. I just want to be able to use 
the whole screen while in a virtual terminal.
