I have an HP Omnibook 2000 laptop. I was successfully able to get DSL installed to the HDD. Using the vesa choice I was able to set the display to 800x600 while running X.
Everything works great except the "root console" where the Kernal loads. It is still set to 1024x768. Which is more than my screen can display. Most of the time this is not a problem, however anytime that I kill X the command prompt is located several lines below the bottom of the screen.
If I type a command at this prompt I can't see what I type. But if i press enter several times the command finally displays at the bottom of the visable area as the lines scroll up.
How do I make the "root console" display at 800x600?
