SCREEN sets the number of lines of text on screen.
SCREEN is a CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS command.
0x11 8x14 font (28 lines VGA, 25 lines EGA)
0x12 8x8 font (50 lines VGA, 43 lines EGA)
0x14 default VGA font (25 lines VGA)
SCREEN switches into videomode xxx (INT10/11xx/000).
Some newer graphics cards may not have 8x14 fonts in the BIOS. In that
case, a driver can be loaded to load a suitable font in RAM, but
SCREEN=0x11 should not be used. If xx is less than 15 (0x0f), it is
treated as screen mode number, for example 1 for CGA 40x25 color text
or 7 for monochrome text.
SCREEN is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other file
in order to work.
