[OS X TeX] Times, Math Pi, and MathTime...

I am finally decided to convert my Lucida and MathTime font sets for 
use with teTeX and TeXShop, as part of my transition to full-time OS 
X use.

I have read through the excellent advice posted by Gary Gray, Bruno 
Voisin, and everyone else. Thanks!

I have converted all of my Type 1 fonts into both pfa and pfb 
formats, though I suspect that I only need the pfb versions. I 
understand where the fonts should be put, and I think I understand 
that I must run texhash after I set up everything (but I am not 
positive about this). I plan on putting the fonts in my ~/Library 

My questions concern the fonts used with MathTime, i.e., Times, 
Helvetica, and others. In order to have a "complete" MathTime setup 
for teTeX and TeXShop, it seems that I need to also convert my 
Helvetica Type 1 font files, my Math Pi Type 1 fonts, and my Times 
family of fonts (I have the complete set, including small caps and 
OSF). From what I can tell, the afm and tfm files are already in 
place in teTeX, but teTeX lacks the Type 1 fonts.

I am pretty sure I understand how to name the Lucida and MathTime 
fonts, and where to put them (under a yandy hierarchy, as I plan on 
using LY1 font encoding.

Question 1: Is this a correct assessment?

Question 2: There seems to be a Times directory under the yandy 
hierarchy for tfm files. Should I name my converted Times pfb files 
as listed there, or as listed in the adobe hierarchy?

Question 3: Have I missed anything else?

Thanks in advance. By the way, I will try to summarize the entire 
procedure and post it after I finish my transition.

Best regards,
