[Mozilla 1.4] Anti Aliasing GUI / Fonts

I know this subject has come up a dozen times, but I still got a problem.

I've downloaded a XFT enabled Mozilla 1.4. Some fonts are now anti aliased, as you can see here: Here

But the GUI of Mozilla isn't font anti aliased, like in Konqueror and other KDE/X applications.

How do I fix this?

Do I have to install TrueType fonts, or aren't those required...?
Is there a simpe .rpm that will fix it all?

while you're there, check out the link Easy Urpmi Config. Very useful for installing rpms from the net.
