Here's a quick crack at making it work. Tested on my laptop, not tested
from a terminal. Let me know if it works...

ftp://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/pub/distrubtions/testing/mozilla-fonts-1.0-1.i386.rpm
ftp://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/pub/distrubtions/testing/mozilla-fonts-ltsp-1.0-1.i386.rpm


mozilla-fonts-1.0-1.i386.rpm contains the fonts for workstations/servers,
mozilla-fonts-ltsp-1.0-1.i386.rpm contains fonts for terminals.

You'll have to edit a few files for these to work. With mozilla-fonts,
edit /etc/X11/fs/config and append "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Mozilla:unscaled"
to the end of the "catalogue" section (be sure to append a "," to the entry
above it. Then run "/sbin/service xfs reload".

With mozilla-fonts-ltsp, edit /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.setupx and 
/opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.setupx3. Find the "FontPath" entries and add
"FontPath /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Mozilla:unscaled"


Finally, configure mozilla to use the new fonts:

======== CONFIGURING NETSCAPE TO USE THE NEW FONTS ========

For Netscape 4:

1. Go to the Edit menu. Select the Preferences item.
2. In the "Netscape: Preferences" window, from the left pane, select Fonts.
3. Make sure the "For the Encoding" option reads "Western (iso-8859-1)."
4. In the right pane, look for the "Variable Width Font" option. Hit the
   down arrow at the right.
5. Look for "Times (Mozilla)." It will probably be toward the bottom.
   Choose it.
6. Now go to the "Fixed Width Font" option. Do the same as above, but now,
   choose "Courier (Mozilla)" instead.
7. Now you'll need to set the proper size. Click on the Size options at
   the very right; choose 15.0 for both of them.
8. Make sure the "Allow Scaling" check buttons are not pressed in.
9. Hit OK at the lower left. You're all set!
