Installing fonts is fairly straight forward.  Since you didn't say what 
exactly you did to install them, there is no way to know what went 
wrong.  Search the list archives, I have posted detailed instructions 
on installing fonts and also check the following




Basically, you have to make the tex support files (.fd, .tmf, .vf, 
.map, .pfb, .sty, ...) and then run updmap to get fonts to work.
