        Well, it depends. I'm a terminal junkie - you'll rarely see me
using an xwindows xterm, when i've got the same ability to have multiple
terms running fullscreen (larger text is good when I'm using my wireless
keyboard from the bed).  If they're using xwindows they can use truetype,
and all redhat installations I know of support it by default.

        If you're going to keep the terminal-only groups going though,
you'll have to make a bitmapped screen font (as stated before).  That's
not too hard - in fact it's easier than the others, as bitmapped fonts are
just grids where you fill in the squares.  However, you'll have to make
them for every size you want, and you'll have to distribute them in a
different form for *nix and windows users.
