you can use the fonts that you use typically in linux by editing your ~/.wine/config file and setup the font directories to point to the location of some of your fonts (this works especially well if you have some TrueType Fonts installed)

also, run wine notepad before ever running any other thing in wine; it will in turn run some of the font building scripts for wine
