You're not talking about grub OR konsole. You're talking about changing 
the resolution of the system console. I can't help you much, because I 
spend most of my time in a GUI's terminal emulator, not at the system 
console. It has been discussed on the list several times in the past few 
months.  Google turns up a few hits with "freebsd console resolution" 
which would point you to man vidcontrol.
