I did a hd install, now when I start up the text runs off the screen, making it hard to tell when to enter things like, my login.

When running off the CD I could fix this by adding startup the option:
fb800x600   (I'm pretty sure that was it)

but I can't do that when booting off the hard drive

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks for the help, I did eventually figure it out on my own, but it's nice to know that I had the help too :)

vga=751 :-) will make you fb800x600x8bit
vga=0 will make you standard 80x25 textmode

vga=789 in /etc/lilo.conf works great for me, 800x600.
