It is pretty easy. There are already console cyrillic fonts. When the
user selects locale, cyrillic fonts would be loaded if the user
selects RU.

The fonts are KOI-8, but some users use CP866 (better table support in
text mode), but KOI-8 is better for e-mail (if you configure your
email client properly first to let through 8-bit characters).

I also used setfont utility to load the fonts I want. Lynx is not so
interesting for internetting, but some sites worked correctly with it.

For X-windows system you can simply install cyrillic fonts from any
old slackware distro - it's a tarball, anyway. Then in X-windows
config file just say that there is one more subdir for Cyrillic fonts.

I've used Netscape 3 with mu with cyrillic fonts and it worked great!

The problem may be that I could not configure typing under X in
Russian - I was (and still am) just a beginner.

Hope this helps a bit,

Best regards,
