How to install Courier New font in Slackware 13


Hi

I want to use Courier New font in my gvim editor. I am using Slackware 13.In my present .gvimrc i have:-
set gfn=Bitstream\ Vera\ Sans\ Mono\ 13

But now i wish to change the font to Courier New. From what i have read this is a Microsoft font, so is there a way that i could get it into Slackware 13?

I found out that an installation of Redhat already has that font and when i do
set gfn=Courier\ New\ 13 in my .gvimrc in Redhat, the fonts are available(which is not so in Slackware 13)

Please provide me steps to install fonts if they are missing or steps to configure(if the fonts are already there)

I have already searched on google but couldn't get much.
Need your help guys.

Thanks for you patience
Regards
lali
