I installed Slackware 3.5. I have a Stealth II video card. I found the X
server for it at SuSe. I dowloaded it and followed the install instructions.
I ran xfconfig. Selected the Rendition card. When I do a startx it comes up
with 6 or 7 errors about Fonts not being found, and then a fatal error:
FontPath not found. whats missing?? Any help is appreciated.
