    xfs is the X Font System. This is loaded so that XF86Free can make use of fonts. Check out your /etc/XF86Config file to see if it loads the fonts by pointing at them by path and name (as opposed to the unix stuff).

    The entries in Grub are contained in the file /boot/grub/grub.conf . So, login as root, cp /boot/grub/grub.conf to /boot/grub/grub.conf.backup and then edit /boot/grub/grub.conf using your favorite editor. You'll see how the entries go.

    have fun


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
