I managed to cat a binary file to the console and now the charset has
been changed to line-drawing chars.

How can I reset the console to restore the normal character set?

Notes:

Running off of the install-x86-minimal-2005.1 CD, chrooted. Was at section
7.a. in the installation handbook.

I asked about this on the #gentoo IRC and the answer is:

# reset

That resets the terminal and all is good now.. :wink:
