    That pretty much answers the question right there IMHO. This is
    an FAQ.

    Not by turning it into a microkernel. Suggesting it is nothing
    more than religious CS BS.

    [Mike A. Harris Linux tip #1 - 50 line mode]
    Is the 80x25 line screen too small for you? If you want more screen real
    estate, you can set 50 column mode by editing your /etc/lilo.conf file, and
    adding a new line with "vga=ext" to the global section near the top. Save
    and exit, then run "lilo". Next time you boot, you'll have a nice big 80x50
