Btw, what is the point with this font server, it doesn't seem to support 
true type fonts like I thought it would, so what's the big idea, Redhat???

Ok :-)

But remember to edit the font.alias 100% correctly, if X can't find a valid 
font for 'fixed', it wont start and you might have to edit font.alias in 
'vi' (yikes!) on the console! (Sorry to vi lovers, but that's just not my 
idea of a fun time)
