I'm probably not a good person to answer, only having run Linux for a
grand total of two days now, but one of the options the installation
program gave me was to select a console-mode font. There were several
ones that for the alphanumerics looked identical to the default console
font, but for extended characters, it replaced them with ISO-xxxx and
other international sets. Try playing with the setfont program, then
