No fonts in most windows games. Please help :)

First of all I must say that Cedega is great.

1 issue though. On most installers the text appeares as sqaures and so I guess it is trying to load microsoft fonts which arn't included in Fedora Core 4 linux.

Can I fix this? A step by step tutorial would be useful as I am very newbie when it comes to the terminal.

Thanks in advance

Do you have a windows installation? if so, try copying the fonts from there. Else, try installing Bitstream Cyber.
