The answer that seemed to work for me was -
Put this in your .cshrc for CDE or .xinitrc if running openwindows:

xset +fp /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/
xset fp rehash

Thanks Tim Fritz. Eddy Keller,James Hsieh and Jim McVey!!

All of the other answers are greatly appreciated as well, as there are
many other ways to accomplish the same thing

i.e. -

I have the following script that runs from my .cshrc file:

     # Setup environment for Netscape
     # dan penrod 10/03/97
     if ( $?PATH ) then
             setenv PATH /usr/local/netscape:$PATH
             setenv PATH /usr/local/netscape
     setenv MOZILLA_HOME /usr/local/netscape
     setenv XKEYSYMDB /usr/local/netscape/XKeysymDB
     #-- If you have trouble with DNS, uncomment...
     #setenv MOZILLA_NO_ASYNC_DNS True
     #Turn of Type 1 fonts to work around Solaris 2.6 bug
     xset -fp /usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/ >& /dev/null
