CorelDRAW for Linux on Slackware?

I've gotten ahold of CorelDRAW for Linux and installed it in Slackware 8.1. I used a list of packages (in the order shown,) required for a full install for RedHat found in the ReadMeFirst.html file on the CD. I ran rpm2tgz on each one and then installpkg on each to ensure the dependency criteria was satisified. All apps show up as installed, but none will execute. I receive an error message stating that no fontserver is running when I try to start Bitstream Font Navigator. Apparently I don't know what whent wrong or what I need to do to correctly install this app. I'm asking for help, if anyone knows what needs to be done and cares to lend a hand. Any help would be appreciated.
