      Thanks, that worked much better than what I had...

      I did, however, have to comment out one of the lines...

      > FontPath "unix/:-1"

      ...as it gave the following errors:

      _FontTransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno = 111
      failed to set default font path 'unix/:-1'
      Fatal server error:
      could not open default font 'fixed'

      But I think that relates to an entirely different issue. I'm running
      RH 6.1 and when I "upgraded" to a newer version of XFree86 (3.3.3.1),
      xfs started locking up while booting. So I yanked it out...haven't
      spent much time working on that problem yet. I saw the above
      XF86Config line mentioned several times during a discussion about my
      problem, though.

      Thanks for your help! I'm comfy with Unix, but am still ramping up
      on
      X stuff.

        I have this exact same configuration in my file, but the TrueType
        font folder does not seem to exist anywhere so errors when trying to
        startx on that. How do I get the
        TrueType installed?
        Thanks
