I don't have words to thank you!
I already had the file gzipped "cursor.pcf.gz" in the /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc directory as per your guess.
All I did was decompressed it (gunzip -d) and got a file cursor.pcf in the directory.
I then restarted X and this is what I am seeing, X started and I can see windows and I can surf! In fact I am writing this on Mozilla under Red Hat 8.0
Most importantly, I had some important files which I had not backed-up, one more lesson learnt!
Thanks again for your expert advice!
