Well, I uncommented the two lines for the fonts in the Xconfig    
and it stopped giving me the error. In fact it just stopped.
I have poured over the FAQ list and the solution for this prob.
is not in there.  After trapping the output from running
startx 2>t.t
it tells me that for line 24 in Xconfig a keyword is expected. 
SO I looked at the file and it was a blank line so I commented
it out and tried again. This time same error on line 29. The line
was Keyboard, so I commented it out and try try again. Error on
line 30 - autorepeat, so I gave up and here I am.

Actually I am beginning to wonder if X11 really works or not. It
seems to fight any attempt to get it running.  Could someone that
has it running give me a hand, as the get-an-error-and-hope-it-
is-covered-in-the-FAQ method is not working.
    Thanks,
     -Dan

As is Dan, I'm starting to wonder if X is real or just some sort of
a cruel joke...  I don't remember having this much trouble with it
at work.

Anyway, I don't even get as far as Dan.  I still get the KD_SETMODE
error - I've uncommented the font path line, it's set correctly, I've
been through all the FAQs and INSTALLs and READMEs and on and on...
I just can't see what I'm missing.  But I've wasted far too much time
stabbing in the dark already.  If anyone has had this sort of ridiculous
trouble, I'd like to hear from you and what you did to get it working...

Dazed and confused, 
Jim.

He kid, what about stop bitching and sending in *real* bug reports ? I didn't
see you Xconfig file in full lenght, nor an exact description of your
hardware. Are you sure that everybody knows what you're Xconfig states on
line 27 ?

So are we ;-)
