gui and drakfont

I cant seem to get into gui, every time linux boots it seems to try and start it, but then just dumps me into the kernel(or whatever(console?), im a linux noob ^^'). I tried startx, but I get an error message "Could not open default font 'fixed' ".
Since it has something to do with the fonts i tried chkfontpath, it gave me a list of fonts, found all of them except 100dpi and the drakfont directory(font too, called pcfdrakfont, or something like that).
/etc/init.d/xfs is running, i tried stopping, then starting it - no effect.
So, is drakfont needed in any way at all?
It happenned to me after an unclean reboot(power outage).

Also, what is "unix/:-1"? a port?

Uh, and sorry for my bad english and lack of experience
