Fedora 17 text mode screen resolution

I've just downloaded a minimal install of Fedora 17, which I only want to use in text mode. Everything seems OK, except that the text is almost impossible to read without using a microscope.

I've searched on configuring GRUB2 (which is apparently where the screen resolution is set) but nothing I've tried works. I'd like 800 x 600 (or even 640 x 480 at a pinch).

Can anybody help?
