[snip entire irrelevant digest]
I've retitled your post with a more informative subject.  This will help 
anyone else that uses a search engine to find answers.

Please do not "Reply" to posts if you are not answering or asking a 
question specifially related to them.  Start a new thread instead by 
composing a mail to "newbie@xfree86.org" with an appropriate subject line.

Please do not quote material unrelated to your post.  You quoted the 
entire digest which means that everyone on this list got a HUGE mail from 
you which didn't help you or them.

Now, on to your question.  Do you have a section like this in your 

Section "Files"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of 
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
        RgbPath      "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
        FontPath     "unix/:7100"

If you don't then you might want to try running "redhat-config-xfree86 
--reconfig" on the commandline as root.

If you do, then do you have a firewall running on the machine or an 
overly-restrictive tcpwrapper setting with /etc/hosts.deny?
