    Placing them in the font directory is not enough. You have to install the
    fonts through the Windows Control Panel.

    Start Menu> Settings> Control Panel > Fonts > Add Fonts.

    You might want to keep the number of installed and active fonts low
    (~150-200, maybe less) or install a third part font manager (Font Reserve,
    Font Agent, SuitCase, The Font Thing, etc.) Each one of your installed
    fonts is going to consume a certain amount of resources within Windows.
    Install too many and Windows will start throwing hairballs.

    Cheers,
    Sam

    Sorry.... answered from memory. Win98/SE is on my other machine.

    To get to Font Control Panel:
    Start Menu> Settings> Control Panel > Fonts

    Once in the Font Control Panel:
    Select the "File" menu and then the "Install New Font" menu item.
    Browse to where your font files are and select them for addition.

    Cheers,
    Sam
