Suitable Console Font for GentooX

I have succesfully managed to get GentooX up and running on my V1.1 XBOX system using a drive E install system. Setting the screen resolution to 640x480 seems to work just fine on my 21" Television connected through Composite cables but the console font seems to be a tad small. I tried updating the console font in /etc/conf.d/consolefonts to lat4a-19 which has helped matters to some extent but I would like to try a bigger font. Using sun20x22 takes up too much screen-space and so I'd prefer something in the size 20 range. Has anyone had any luck with other console fonts / do you know of any online repositories where I may find downloadable fonts?

On another note, I prefer using Vim as my text editor, though GentooX doesn't bundle it in the default installation. I am not familiar with the install system in GentooX (I use Slackware / Ubuntu on my desktops) but would like to install Vim on the system. Please note that the XBOX is not connected to the internet, I will have to download a package and install it. Could anyone point me in the right direction?

I downloaded and installed the "Terminus" font. At size 20 it seems to be perfect for the TV screen.
