I'd like to thank Bear Giles for his Debian TTF howto which brought me on the right path :o).
Of course, credit should also go to the XFree86 crew for the enormous effort of maintaining XFree86, and Joerg Pommnitz for writing
Also I'd like to pass a BIG big thank you to the LDP for building and maintaining a network of helping hands which already guided many people through the hard to overcome the learning curve Linux has.
Thanks to Joe Meadows for notifying me that this howto probably described an illegal act in version 0.0.2 and earlier.
I currently don't know of any translations of this mini-HOWTO, if you want to make one, just do it and either submit it yourself, or send it to me and I will credit you and publish it.
