Hebrew fonts ?xset problem

Using SUSE 9.0, and have persuaded linux to allow me to type in hebrew and in teh correct direction, although only one font on the system. SO far two evenings wasted!

I downloaded a tar file of fonts from
First, according to the instructions on the page, i untarred the files into /root/.fonts

then entered and got:
linux:~ # xset +fp .fonts
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
xset: unable to open display ":0.0"

i get a similar reply when typing xset q

many thanks
