font configuration in RHEL 5.4

Dear All,

I have few doubts regarding fonts configuration in RHEL 5.4.

[vinay@linuxcoe4 fonts]$ cd /usr/share/X11/fonts
[vinay@linuxcoe4 fonts]$ ls
100dpi  75dpi  encodings  misc  TTF  Type1  util
[vinay@linuxcoe4 fonts]$ cd /usr/share/fonts/
[vinay@linuxcoe4 fonts]$ ls
bitmap-fonts  bitstream-vera  default  dejavu-lgc  liberation
What is the difference between fonts in /usr/share/X11/fonts and /usr/share/fonts

Also there is no fonts.dir file, which describes fonts under a specific fonts directory in /usr/share/fonts tree.

But we can find fonts.dir or fonts.scale file under /usr/share/X11/fonts/ tree. Does files under /usr/share/fonts tree are not dependent on fonts.dir ?

Thanks in advance...
