As Hannu has suggested, rxvt is your best bet if you don't like the console

The console window can do this.  On NT/W2K/XP, change the screen buffer 
size layout property to be bigger than the window size (this is under the 
system menu properties for the console window).  On 9x/Me, you can really
only get this by using the mouse to resize your window to smaller than 
its default size.
