        Also, which version of X are you running? if it's newer than 4.0.1, it 
should include Truetype font support via the freetype font module. Uncomment 
the line (or add it, if you don't have it), and then specify the path to your 
windows fonts in the Fontpath section. The module line should look like:

Section "Module"

    Load        "freetype"

        Give that a go, and see what you get, IF you have Xfree86 > 4.0.
