Problem getting Font types to work on IE8 - IE9

I dont really understand much about fonts, I have donwloaded several font from sites like font squirrel, dafont,  and when I try installing in my joomla site, ( I only need to have this font on my menu top) no whole body nor h1,h2  tags.

The font dont display correclty, I tested a font on my personal compuet at home IE9and was able to have it working , but in IE 8 here at job it does not display ...   So what would be the best way to have it working on IE8, what is the font type , and css declaration I need?  Thank you very much

Web pages are displayed using the fonts that are installed on the computer that is being used, not fonts on the server that the pages come from.  'sIFR' is a technique to load fonts from a server and overwrite the basic fonts with new and different ones.  But it requires specially formatted font files and javascript to implement it.
