It was thus said that the Great Jerome H. Fine once stated:

  Linux does support higher text resolutions (my firewall console is
currently set to 132x60) but the video card has to support the text
resolution you require (I've found it to be hit or miss). I use lilo to set
the video mode, but there is a way to do it from the command line (although
I've forgotten how).
