Kernel 2.2 supports some ANSI sequences to change cursor shape.
You can use

echo -e -n "\033[?17;7;112c"

to get a nice white-on-black block cursor.

The first number influences the height, the second and third change
foreground and background color. They do it in a way, that's hard to
understand (IMHO).
