Q-"However she needs Times New roman for a project..."
A-OK , if she is licensed user of Microsoft Windows operating system she can then simply copy Times New Roman file from
c:\windows\fonts folder to her Fedora 8 /home/user_name folder and use
KDE Konqueror ( file system browser ) and install new TTF either systemwide
( she has to login as root) or only for her user account.
I know KDE 3.5.x can do that : once you locate new and still not installed True Type Font you can simply select file, right-click on it , select "Action" to perform and  tell Konquerror to "Install" it. It's that easy.
