Embedding a font

I have recently purchased a website template, but needed to change the font.  So, I purchased the font that I wanted, edited the text in the external style sheet and uploaded it.  Unfortunately, it doesn't display the actual font and substitutes it.  

Is there a way of using a font that is not on the viewers PC (without using images)?

Sorry if this is a dumb question (not my area of expertise).

Thanks guys and sorry to be a pain, but just to confirm (before going to the links).  A website can display a font correctly, without it being available on the viewers PC.

You can also use cufon to do font substitution and not have the font reside on the user's machine.
