Install CM-Super, add the MAP file fragments if necessary, patch the  
MAP file to contain also any "alias font names" if necessary. The  
conversion then will use PostScript fonts.

To find out the fonts used in a DVI file:

	dvitype file.dvi | egrep '^Font' | awk '{print $3}' | awk -F-  
'{print $1}' | sort -u



If all else fails read the instructions.
