CentOS 5.x :

# yum search tamil
# yum -y install fonts-tamil

And get ' TSC_Sri.ttf ' here
http://www.tamil.net/tscii/tools.html
http://www.kalkionline.com/downloads/downloadfonts.asp
( can also be found via the @jdkaye link ).

# cp TSC_Sri.ttf /usr/share/fonts/

... and restart the browser to read tamil.
