But, based on your FAQ link, it seems that things may have changed as it doesn't reference any such config files.
If one's machine is capable of 80x50, it might work out reasonably well if /etc/rc.local contained these commands:
wsfontload -h 8 -e ibm /usr/share/misc/pcvtfonts/vt220l.808
wsconscfg -dF 5
wsconscfg -t 80x50 5
Then [CTRL]+[ALT]+[F6] after boot to get the 80x50 login screen.
