    reg hack:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Console\TrueTypeFont

    There should be a value with the name "0" containing the data "Lucida Console"
    Add a new string key called "00" with the value of a new font.

    This should make the font available in the command prompt properties.. select that font and make the changes to either just that window or to "all windows with that name"

    However, you cannot have it in italics.
    Microsoft has specific requirements for the command prompt font found in KB 247815
    edit: the KB article only references win2k.. not sure if it applies to xp or win2k3 as I never tried an italic typeface.
