Maybe this can get you started:
As for font downloads, Google is your friend.

Hey uselpa, the period "." was included in the link you posted and so wouldn't display the page. Here is the corrected link. BTW, never saw this particular page but that's the way I add my "other OS's" fonts to my Linux box. Works like a top. Also just recently discovered the DisplaySize thing for my xorg.conf file. Really helped with font rendering.

I found this tutorial very useful:

I don't know about fonts under KDE because I don't use it

In KDE you can use the Control Center to install fonts.

In GNOME you can go to fonts:/// in the file manager and drag and drop fonts.

Take a look at my first post in this thread for installing truetype fonts for use with any DE or WM in Linux and other *NIX.
