Fonts and GTK2 in KDE SUSE 10

Hi, Thanks for your attention again. I am strugling to get fonts set up on my dell 700m in KDE SUSE 10. Iwas wondering if there was anyone who has a recommendation for me to get ALL the fonts appear a crisp as they do in WinXP on this 1280x800 widesecreen dpi 96 (i think).
Recommendations like what theme, font and size and icon size would best suit the screen. I am in KDE. What I also find is that GNOME apps lik GAIM, have huge fonts size (ugly ones as well). I also installed firefox 1.5, and that gave me hell to get the fonts set up in the menu (large size), so I downgraded back to 1.0.7.

I read somewhere that appa that use GTK fonts (whatevr that means)can be set using GTK2 Preferences ( ihave this under Utilities>Desktop>GTK2 Prefs), but when I set the fonts there and choose the theme, and save these settings (alerting me that the previous file will be replaced and that I have to restart apps to see the change), nothing happens.

Can some tell me ehat I am doing wrong?

I appreciate your time and advice,

I highly recommend Making non-antialiased fonts look nice
See also General MS font setup for SuSE and SuSE/KDE centric, unless you already have this info. I am not certain why the GTK2 pref are not working for you, sorry.
Hope that helps.
