I think the OPs problem is they are running it from a console rather
than under X. 

One way around would be to configure the console to use a smaller font
so that you get more than the 25x80 you get with default font size. Of
course, how useful this is would depend on how large your monitor is.
Under Linux, this can be configured via LILO at boot time. Not sure
about other boot loaders like grub etc.
