cygwin and terminal emulators

What operating system are you using?  What screen resolution?

The size of my BASH window is about 80 (wide) by 55 (high).
WinNT/Win2K: Open the BASH prompt using one of the icons installed (or one
you created).  Click on the Cygwin icon in the upper left corner and click
Properties.  Go to Layout.  Enter the number of width & height of the
window.  When you click OK, tell it to modify the icon that launched the
program.  Then either copy that icon over your other icons or do the same
for each icon.

I mean I would like to make use of a full screen terminal
(i.e. COLUMNS>80?, LINES>24?).
