how do i adjust the console screen size?

Does anyone know how to adjust the console screen size? right now my dmesg
shows the following:
NG1: Revision 3, 24 bitplanes, REX3 revision B, VC2 revision A, xmap9 revision A
, cmap revision C, bt445 revision A
NG1: Screensize 1296x1024
Console: colour SGI Newport 162x64

with a width of 1296, most of my prompt is missing as well as some of the
output. Is it possible to change this to 1280?
