Default font of FC5 is not the same as RH9. How to match these?

With the help of people here in this forum, I was able to install FC5 on my system. Its working fine. Thanks for the help.
However, I have one issue now. I feel that the default font in FC5 is not the same as the default font of RedHat-9. I feel that the font of RH9 is very attractive and gives a 'nice' feeling to work with. However, in FC5, the font is a bit bigger and somewhat not as same as RH9. How do we set the default font of FC5 to be the same as the one in RH9?
Kindly help.

The last time most of us ran RH9 was in 2004 when support ended for it. So most of us will not remember an OS font that we quit using four years ago. FC5 hit EOL (end of life) a year (possibly more) ago. Please update to a supported version. Fedora 8 is current and Fedora 9 will be released in a matter of days.
