Adding TTF fonts from an existing Windows install...

How do I do it? I've located the directory where all my Windows fonts live (/mnt/hda1/WINDOWS/Fonts), but I don't know which directory to move them into so that I can use them in MEPIS 3.3.1.

It's a very n00bie question... but I have only been using MEPIS for 2 weeks

You need to install the package mscorefonts using apt-get, kpackage or synaptic.
