I am new and very happy to say I've got Arch/XFCE/nfs working on network and soon to work on Samba but how in the wide wide world of sports can I get larger font on my terminal when in XFCE?
Thanks in advance,
if it's xterm you use, you can simply specify another font:
xterm -fa courier
... other tricks can be done in your ~/ .Xdefaults file
and check if the DisplaySize is set right in /etc/X11/XF86Config
it should be the value of the size of your monitor in milimeters (width heigh)
Section "Monitor" ... DisplaySize 305 230 ... EndSection
The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
I should have been more specific as it is the font size i'm looking to change
as this is totally tiny. I will look in the above mentioned files- let me know if
I should look elsewhere.

I too have experienced the "agony of defeat" with fonts and xterm. Here is how I use to launch my xterm:
xterm -fa "andale:size=18" -bg black -fg white -geometry 80x25 -tn xterm-color -sl 1000
* The key is the "size" parameter after the font (fa)mily name. I was using True Type fonts and was using "andale" in this case. I believe the size field should be applicable to whichever font you choose. Alternatively, I believe you can pass the "-fs" option to xterm to accomplish the same thing as ":size".
xterm -fa "andale" -fs "18"
will accomplish the same text size as in the first example. Just try different font size (fs) values, and see which values will actually scale for that font.
One caveat, I believe the "fa" option for xterm is limited to the freetype library fonts.
