X on a Fujitsu Lifebook 420D

Hello everybody,

So, here is the story,  A friend gave me his old Lifebook 420D and I
decided to go with a Debian install on it.  I read up on the difficulties
some have had getting XFree86 to work on it, and I've used their
information to the best of my knowledge in getting X to work.  

Its a simple problem, but one I should know better to take care of.  When
I initiate X (startx or xinit) the laptop begins to spew a whole bunch of
information and attempts to start X.  It craps out shortly and returns the
following error:

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

Some links have pointed me to some possibilities with the font.aliases
file, but I haven't quite yet ventured there.  I'm wondering if anyone has
had any similar problems, and if you could hopefully point me along in the
right direction.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
