[vox-tech] My fonts suck

My fonts look terrible on linux.  I'm really trying to move from windows 
to linux but, the fonts
look so bad (and netscape is about a 1000 times worse than the 
IE/Outlook combo).

I have a IBM a21m laptop, 15 in screen, 1024x768 res.  I've loaded all 
the fonts from my
RH6.2 CD.  But if you could see what I'm looking at, you'd be shocked.  
Now I know its not 
a problem with the screen, because when I run vmware and win2k inside of 
that, it looks

My question is:  Am I even using the fonts I installed?  Do I need to do 
some setup/configuration
to enable the fonts.

It seems particularly bad in netscape products (surprise surprise), but 
it is also bad in the abiword app
and other X apps (gnumeric).  Now I know that I can change fonts in 
netscape, even after trying them
all non are really satisfactory.

Any ideas, help
