There is a correct method - http://www.computing.net/windows95/wwwboard/forum/17917.html or you can just copy them to your FONTS folder.  This will be in c:\windows\ if you do not have users logging in.  Otherwise it should be located under c:\windows\profiles ...

You may also need to repair
your Fonts folder...you can do this with TweakUI's Repair tab.  Get TweakUI here: http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/powertoys/networking/nttweakui.asp . Note the path indicates
that it is for NT, but it works fine on Win95, 98, ME, 2000, and NT.

If they are critical system fonts and you know their names you can go to Start/Run and type SFC then Ok.  When the window comes up put a tick in the circle next to "Extract one file from installation disk.".  You will need the Win98 CD for this or if you have the CAB files copied to your harddrive just point SFC to the correct drive/directory.

Another C!!  What do you have to do to get an A around here - go onsite and do it yourself?

I gave you a "C"   for the following reasons

I went to the link and all It really said was to a program called "Bitstream Font Navigator"  which I could not find, and it probably is not freeware.

as to your other statement...  copy to c:\windows\fonts   copy  What? (I assune *.ttf)  from Where?
answer just not worth more..   Sorry..

Now you know that I was just ribbing you right?  I've never known you to give anything less than 300% and in MHO you ALWAYS deserve an A.  :-)

Yep.  Just kidding.

pentomino, I gave you an improper link, then.  There is an option to Install New Fonts on the File menu of your Fonts (in Control Panel).  I have had more success just copying the ttf files into the fonts directory.  Sorry about that.

slink9 is right.  I do this myself all the time instead of fooling around with the "Install new font" thingy.  This also works if you have corrupted font files and you need to overwrite them.  If you are still wanting the original Windwos fonts from the CD you can use my suggestion above about SFC (System File Checker).
