Slackware 10.2 font problem

Hello guys,
I'm facing a problem with the console font.
Every letter is ΟΚ exept the letter m. When i keystroke
the m it appears a square instead of the letter m. The other
letters are working fine. What can i do to solve this problem.

There is a utility that configures the font, I believe. It may be one of the little utilities that comes with slackware, like the network configuration utility, the clock utility, and so on. Sorry I am not being more descriptive but I can't think of the name at the moment.

It's "setconsolefont", and needs to be run as root. When going through the list I've found it easiest to alternate between "Enter" and "down arrow" - so you click "Enter" on a font to see what it looks like, "down arrow" selects "No", "Enter" to accept "No", then down arrow to select the next font - repeat. When you find one you like you can then select "Yes" and "OK".
