1) Check, if you have the following directories on your system:
	   /usr/openwin/lib/locale/iso_8859_5/X11/fonts/
   and/or
	  /usr/openwin/lib/locale/ru.ansi-1251/X11/fonts/

  If not, you need to install the packages SUNWi5rf and/or SUNW1251f from
  the Solaris CDs

2) Add the directories from step (1) to your Xeserver's fontpath, e.g
	xset fp+ ...
	xset fp rehash
   A possibility to make this permanent (probably not the best but it worked
   for me nevertheless), is to add the "xset" statement to your startkde
   script (there are similar statements in ther already).

After having installed the appropriate kde-i18n package, you should be able
to have a cyrillic desktop...

Hope this helps,

	Torsten
