two questions: 

a) got any fonts installed? The expression

   bash-2.01$ dpkg -l "xfonts*" | egrep "^ii"

should produce a list of X font packages installed. On my machine,
which is a rather straightforward standard installation of Debian 2.1
the command yields

   bash-2.01$ dpkg -l "xfonts*" | egrep "^(i.|.i)"
   ii  xfonts-100dpi    100 dpi fonts for X servers
   ii  xfonts-75dpi    75 dpi fonts for X servers
   ii  xfonts-base    standard fonts for X servers

b) is your value of "FontPath" in the file


ok? I mean, do the directories specified there contain any fonts?
Are there any directories on your machine containing X fonts that
are not specified there?

Finding out about these questions could help solving the problem.
