Change Fonts

I have a major Newbie question. How do I change system font type ore sizes? In windows you would go into the display settings, appearance and change the type such as header to whatever font type and size you want. How do you do it in Linux?

I have SUSE 10.0. I've looked through Yast and stuff but I cant seem to find anything.

In Gnome go to the taskbar and select Desktop>Preferences>Font for applications like firefox or OpenOffice check out the option menus.

If you are using KDE, use kcontrol if using GNOME there is a menu entry somewhere under Preferences for changing fonts.
