KDE 96 dpi...???

I am trying to make kde desktop use 96 dpi fonts, but no success yet.Perhaps someone who has done this with mandriva 2005LE could help? i have understood,this can be done.Iīve checked couple of threads, here in linuxq,that addressed this problem,but...exactly which files i have to is one example that i did modify as told...

# Xservers file, workstation prototype
# This file should contain an entry to start the server on the
# local display; if you have more than one display (not screen),
# you can add entries to the list (one per line). If you also
# have some X terminals connected which do not support XDMCP,
# you can add them here as well. Each X terminal line should
# look like:
# XTerminalName:0 foreign
:0 local@tty1 /usr/X11R6/bin/X -dpi 96 -deferglyphs 16
:1 local@tty2 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X :1 vt8 -deferglyphs 16
:2 local@tty3 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X :2 vt9 -deferglyphs 16
:3 local@tty4 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X :3 vt10 -deferglyphs 16
:4 local@tty5 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X :4 vt11 -deferglyphs 16
:5 local@tty6 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X :5 vt12 -deferglyphs 16

### Don't change these two lines; they are hints for genkdmconf. ###
### Version 2.0 ###

That 96 dpi there on the first line is that modification. but what that -deferglyphs mean? should it be removed? There was couple of other files just like this one,modified them too.
but it still not working.

Here's a great link for you that describes the process in detail for 100dpi fonts:

I've tried it and it works great.
