Have a MinoltaSRT202 w/Minolta W.ROKKOR-X 28mm lens & vivitar 85-205. Would lenses fit a DSLR body? Which one/s?

Sony bought Minolta's stuff, so your best bet is trying a Sony DSLR. if that fails, start digging for adapters. they might need to be for a Canon DSLR due to lens mount distances.

Do the lenses indicate what type of mount they use? If the DSLR supports that mount, they ought to work. Check certain features though; I recall years ago having a third party lens that would work with my SLR, but not engage the automatic f-stop so I had to set it manually.
Still, for a much better answer, you may wish to try a photography forum. This one is mostly devoted to personal computers, although we do cover additional electronics / techie stuff as well. A photography forum would probably be able to provide a more specific answer.

I have no idea how to determine. Have never used SLR camera. How can I tell. Tried to find a regular camera shop to go to and none exist close to me any more.

I'm not sure how much this will help but this is what I found:
Minolta SRT200: Minolta SR Bayonet - compatible with MC and MD mount Minolta lenses
Minolta W.ROKKOR-X 28mm lens - Camera Mount Type: Minolta SR (MD/MC)
I believe the Vivitar is an MD mount.
You may be able to find an adapter to fit those lenses with some DSLRs but there will some drawbacks.
