Description of problem:
Using the default grub.conf for FC3, the grub menu screen is too large to display -- it is "scrolled" off the screen.
In the past, if I pressed Up or Dn, the screen would "jump" to the menu and I could see the top part of the menu. This isn't working right now, but I just switched to a USB keyboard and I see there are other potential problems there. (To be clear, this happens with a USB or PS/2 keyboard.)
It looks like the font is wrong or the VGA mode is wrong, but I couldn't find a way to update this.
This is happening on both machines, a Sony laptop (which isn't here at the moment but I can get specs if needed) and a desktop machine with an "NVIDIA GeForce2 MX". The actual card is a MadDog, but I don't have the model number handy.
