Angry How do you install True Type fonts!?

I've installed Debian Woody, compiled a new kernel and installed the package for the new Xfree86. Now all I want to do is install some new fonts.

I tried the packages I used apt-get for from, but they only installed a copyright file and a changelog... no fonts!!!

I then proceeded to the site the fonts are from and download the ttf itself. I downloaed them and then... what now!? I red up on some tutorial I found, but it asked me to mess with dirs I didnt have and instructed me to apt-get programs that give me error messages when I run them!!

Does the website supply an RPM package? If they do, download it, and from your file browser, just run it. Easy as that. Only if they supply an RPM package though, which most people do.
