Hey! If you poke around on google enough, you eventually find
what you need: http://www.seasip.demon.co.uk/Unix/PSF/

I used the psfxform tool to double the size of the latarcyrheb-sun16
font, gzipped it and copied it to the /lib/kbd/consolefonts/
directory (which is where I found the original), and then changed
the /etc/sysconfig/i18n file to say:


and I can now read the screen without squinting during boot.

I suppose if I wanted to go whole hog, I'd also change the
kernel boot parameter and rebuild the initrd to include the
new font, but since I boot with "quiet", nothing much comes
out in the old font anyway.
