I read his question more like "Where to get addtional fonts when I can't
steal^W borrow them from a windows system?"

Answer: Go to rpmfind.net look for a package called
webfonts-1.3.noarch.rpm. It was built for a much earlier version of RHL,
so they may not land in the right spot or trigger whatever needs to be
done to install them correctly. The package provides those Microsoft
fonts that are downloadable from the Microsoft website. For other fonts,
you meed to find them already installed somewhere. You can also check
www.filesearching.com for '.ttf' or 'TrueType'. That site is a search
engine for anonymous ftp sites, and many things pop up there that
shouldn't necessarily.
