There may be a better way but reboot and add "vga=ask" to the end of
your kernel line.
This sets the resolution not the columns and lines but you should be
able to find one you like. Once you do edit your /boot/grub/grub.conf
and add the vga=... to your kernel lines. Use the same mode you
selected manually only add 0x (that's a zero) to the front of it,
If you tried 37d (i'm making this up but it could be a real mode) then
you would add "vga=0x37d" to the end of your kernel line.
