Can't find Arial Font in selection lists

I'm running Fedora Core 6 and KDE. When I go into the KDE Control Panel --> Appearance and Themes --> Fonts, I see Arial 12 selected as the General Font, however, when I click "Choose", Arial is not in the list. It's the same way in Writer. I don't see "Arial" in the Font list, but it recognizes it when I manually type in "Arial".

Anyone know what I am missing? I'd like to see Arial and other common fonts listed in drop down lists?

Thanks for your help.
