No, X is fine (browser, email, cdplayer, xterm, etc) :)
I have rebooted and I am thinking the "booting" fonts are larger than my other distros. I didn't want to bother my monitor in case it caused the screens on other distros to change. Maybe there is something in grub I can add to indicate which font size to use.???

Try using the controls on your monitor to bring the screen back in view. It is strange, however, that you say your x is fully in view but your vt is not. This sometimes happens to me after installing a new distro and I simply use the controls on my monitor to center the display. But I do this only after noticing it from gnome. Are you sure that your desktop does not go off screen slightly?

    Hello from a new user :)
    I installed gnewsense last night via the livecd.
    I noticed that while the system was booting and splashscreen was showing
    with the booting process scrolling up the screen, the bottom portion
    below sight. I had the same problem when working at the console. If I
    had a full console screen of info (as ls -al), the prompt would be off
    the bottom of the screen so that I couldn't see what I was typing.
    When running X, all fonts and programs look fine. It is just while
    working at a console login.
    The font size for the console looks fine (not big).
    I run several other distros (including Debian) and I don't have this
    I searched the archives and google but either didn't find anything or
    missed it.
    I also looked under grub to see if it had a font listed in the menu.lst,
    but didn't see anything.
    I just installed the system and did a update/upgrade.
    I have a Radeon 7000 series graphic card.
