Cool RHEL 5 Fonts not installed - adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal and adobe-courier-medium-r

New to RHEL5 and the sys admin role. Once of my developers runs his applications and gets an error that some fonts are not installed, specifically adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal and
adobe-courier-medium-r-normal. This system is not connected to the internet however, if I attach another RHEL5 system to the internet how does one download the fonts and where should I place them, I wonder?

A million thanks,
Johnny Mac

Do you have subscription(s) for RHEL? If so, I assume that fonts can be downloaded from RHN using the package manager. If not, better to use Fedora or CentOS.

Also note that RHEL 5 is obsolete.
