How to change putty gui font (Kde)

I'm using putty in Debian (with Kde). I use it because it's easy to manage a lot of servers connection.
But in Kde the default font is too big and not very nice. I've been trying to change it, but I just found how to change the terminal font type, and there's no problem with it. I'd like to change the gui font size/type.
Does anybody knows if It's possible?
I did some googlin' but I got no result in that direction.

Thanks in advance,

If running KDE 3.x

In a terminal, type kcontrol
-> Appearance & Themes
-> Fonts

Happy font-configuring!

If KDE 4.x - No idea. Sorry.

I'm using kde 3.5. But I had tried to change font size the way you said. But It seems not to apply to putty. May be because it's gtk based (?)
Still I couldn't find the way to change it.
