Description of problem:
After switching to runlevel 5 my system attempts to boot into Xwindows but
fails to do so.  When I run startx from the command prompt, I get a fatal
error message saying that the default font "fixed" cannot be found.   I
installed both from graphic mode and text mode to see if any errors were
generated during the installation but I found none.  My video card is an S3
Trio 3D/2X.  I am running Version 7.1 without a problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Either allow the system to attempt to boot into Xwindows on its own or
type startx from the command prompt.

Actual Results:  I get an error message that says "fatal error. Default
font "fixed" cannot be found"

Expected Results:  I should have booted into either the kdm or gdm
graphical login screens.
