    For some weird reason windows wont recognize the fonts i install. I usually had put the fonts in the windows/font dir and they would appear. I know win98 has the right click install thingy but i dont see it in xp. can anyone help?

    Have you tried opening the fonts folder in the control panel and go to File => Install new font?

    hey... when you have the fonts (presumably in zip format) you do have to unzip them... and then cut cut and paste them into the dir.. WIN XP should unstall them automatically..

    hope this helps..

    peace

    here's a great tip from yoyo, which will save some system resources when installing fonts;

    Tip/Tweak: How to temporarily install a font
    Since it is not recommendable to install too many, better store your collected fonts somewhere else. If you want to use one of these only for one session simply doubleclick on it and minimize the window that pops up. Windows now thinks this font is installed and it is available in any application you open.
