Default CLI font size

Is there a way of setting the CLI font size (or number of lines and columns)?

Thanks! MODE_34 doesn't work, but MODE_32 does (30 lines). I think that's because of my screen.

You can list avialable modes by typing vidcontrol -i mode

You can also make that permanent by using allscreens_flags="MODE_32" in /etc/rc.conf
