 One problem I am seeing is that the correct video card drivers are not
being used by the system.  It selects the generic vesa driver.  The
video card is S3Trio3D.  I try to change to that one in the pull down
list for system-config-display to S3 Trio3D/2X and it won't let me
change it.  What would I put in xorg.conf to get the correct drivers
used?  Could that be part of the problem with the size of the GDM text?
Have you tried system-config-display --reconfig ?  Execute that from
runlevel 3 - you may want to back up /etc/X11/xorg.conf first.  If the
S3 card is not recognized I would suggest filing an entry in bugzilla.
You may also try manually setting the driver to S3 Virge - that may get
you a working desktop but it may cause problems for DRI/3D applications.

As another poster mentioned, you should have normal-sized fonts even
with the VESA driver.  Double-check that the "Monitor" section
of /etc/X11/xorg.conf has a line like:
        DisplaySize  320        240
Those numbers represent your monitor's viewable image area in mm, and
320x240 is a common size for a 17-inch CRT.  I would also log an entry
in bugzilla if the DisplaySize parameter is present and the fonts are
still too small.
