Hi Michael, sorry for that, though I don't understand - if you boot
your system without ! any extensions (including kernel extensions)
the fonts provided in the lists should let you boot without any issues
(if you start in safe mode kernel and other ext aren't loaded).
And as Craig wrote none of the fonts in user/whatsoever are needed by
the core system.
If you still startup with extensions wich possibly need certain fonts,
especially kernel extensions - I am afraid that I totally uncapable of
any help here.
Again, I am sorry for all the problems you went through..
