SUSE Linux 9.1: small fonts after system update

I used 'System Update' from YAST2 on SUSE Linux 9.1.     After I restarted the system, all the fonts are too small to read and I can navigate through any of the menus.   I tried 'Backup Restore' from YAST2 but no luck.    

Thanks for your help.

There are several reasons for this, lets attack them one-by-one

A: KDE config is borked:

1) get to a terminal login screen with Ctrl+Alt+F2
2) Login as you.
3) do 'mv .kde .kde_backup'
4) Press Alt+F7 to go back to X and login normally. All of kde will now be using default values

B: Font cache or scaling is borked:

1) get to a terminal login screen with Ctrl+Alt+F2
2) Login as root
3) run 'telinit 3' to shut down X
4) run 'SuSEconfig --module fonts'
5) run 'telinit 5' to start X again

Think this is enough as a first pass....

cheers.
