I guess that I am confused also. I meant for you to issue the xfontsel command before starting X. When I checked man xfontsel again I saw that xfontsel is a gui command so issuing fontsel from within a script is not the thing to do. Sorry.
I didn't actually change the font used by the system. If you are wondering how to change the font displayed in xfontsel, click on "fndry" with your mouse and select from the list. Then click on each category from left to right. Just click on different selections until you produce a font you like.
