Ibm5250 emulator requires monspaced fonts. It works fine with Fedora Core 2.

The required fonts were included in xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts package included with 
Fedora Core 2

In Fedora Core 3 the package changed names to fonts-xorg-75dpi
and only includes one encoding (iso10646-1)

What happened to the other font encodings for iso8859-1, iso8859-2 iso8859-5 
and iso8859-15

The changelog does not mention removing this font encoding.

ibm5250 currently requires the following fonts

Please include the fonts and encodings listed above in the 75 and 100dpi 
packages, or point me to another font package I can get for xorg that includes 
the the fonts listed above.
