On an installation of CentOS 4 I have, all the files under that
directory belong to the "fonts-xorg-base" package, so you might try
starting with that one. Looking at fonts.alias inside misc, I believe
the name "fixed" is going to be aliased to a font in that directory,
so this should fix your problem.

If that still does not fix your problem, then try installing
"fonts-xorg-100dpi" and "fonts-xorg-75dpi" as well.
