Re-reading the above could be interpreted that I want to be able 
to review more keyboard lines; not so. I should not have used the 
word "keyboard". I'm looking for redisplay of the screen lines. 
Both kbdcontrol and vidcontrol perform that function. I've built 
a workaround by adding this to root and user .cshrc: 
     alias bu vidcontrol -h (with a space following). 
This allows me to type 'bu 500' to set the buffer to 500 lines.

In addition, I would like to be able to set it during boot. Is 
that possible?
