Do you mean the "real" console or really a terminal window? Works
for both. :)

On the console just choose another resolution of framebuffer. Either
while booting at the bootprompt (nofb, fb....) or via fbset later

When using e.g. xterm just press control and right mousebutton and
choose a bigger font in the menu. And of course you can specify a
certain font (type) on your own via Xresources, I predefined some
useful values. E.g. run:

% xterm -name blind

For more details take a look at ~/.Xresources of user grml (which
derives from /etc/skel/.Xresources).
