Installing Windows Fonts in Mandrake...

When I go into the Mandrake control centre, system, fonts, and try to get the Windows Fonts, the first progress bar (initials tests) fills, but when it gets to the ¨copying fonts to system¨ progress bar it pretty much dies, the control centre will not re-draw unless I click on one of the other control centre icons (such as hardware) and a ¨changes will not take effect¨ warning comes up, where I have to click OK if I want to get the control centre back.

Is this a known bug? Is there some way to fix this?

BTW: I do have a valid internet connection and I am running Mandrake Control Centre as root...

Ooh, running drakconf from an xterm... this is the error I get when trying to install the windows fonts...

Any clues?
