TrueType Fonts with XFS

Hi All,

Hopefully one of the last questions for a while ;), but one that I really
need to get answered to make my KDE 3.2.1 (Fedora Core 1) desktop good. :)

I have a whole bunch of TrueType fonts installed on my system.  I got 
these in by following instructions outlined at the following location:

This is all fine and well, and OpenOffice finds my new fonts great.  They
also show up in the output of `fslsfonts -server localhost:7100`, which
queries my XFS server (with TCP/IP sockets enabled) and returns the goods.  
However, neither Mozilla Firebird or Konqueror recognize the fonts.  With
regards to just Konqueror, and when viewing a webpage, I go to Settings,
Configure Konqueror, and then Fonts on the left, and none of my fonts are
listed in the drop-down menus to the right.  Could this be an issue WRT
language encoding, or shouldn't all of the fonts naturally appear there?b
I've checked every language encoding and every drop-down, to no avail. :)

Does KDE / Konqueror handle fonts different and w/o the use of XFS?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, in advance.
