The Font-section in control panel does NOT have the option "Install a Font" How come? I have tried copying Control.exe from the cabinet-files but this does not help.

Just copy the font into the <windows root>/FONT directory, and they should be detected automatically!!

Select Fonts in Control Panel and under File on the Pull Down Menus there should be "Install New Font".  Thats what my Windows 98 has anyway.  If its not there I would be suspecting that the Installation is faulty or incomplete.
