This is the version you'll want for use with pdfLaTeX. It's the Mac OS  
Classic font format. Putting the screen font suitcase and the LWFN  
PostScript fonts inside /Library/Fonts or ~/Library/Fonts makes them  
available for OS X but not for LaTeX. For LaTeX you'll need to convert  
them to PFB format and put the PFB files inside /usr/local/texlive/ 
texmf-local/fonts/type1 or ~/Library/texmf/fonts/type1; for this you  
can refer to <http://tug.org/mactex/fonts/fonttutorial-current.html>  
(for example regarding the use of t1unmac), though a little adaptation  
will be required. I won't be able to provide more specific help, sorry.

This may provide you the PFB or PFA (an ASCII version of the binary  
PFB) files directly, but won't be of any use for using the fonts with  

> or "OpenType" format,

This is the most advanced version and the most "compatible" with OS X.  
For using it with LaTeX you'll need to use XeLaTeX, not pdfLaTeX.  
Beware though: the Utopia and Fourier font support requires virtual  
fonts; by default XeLaTeX invokes xdv2pdf to convert from its own  
output format XDVI (extended DVI) to PDF, and xdv2pdf doesn't support  
virtual fonts; you'll need to make XeLaTeX invoke the alternative XDVI- 
to-PDF converter xdvipdfmx, which does support virtual fonts. For  
details on this, you can turn to the XeTeX mailing list at <http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/xetex 

Hope this helps despite the absence of details,
