Installing Fonts on RHEL4

Hello All,

I want to install some fonts from my unix box (Tru64) to linux box (RHEL4). I know what all steps are required, like

> mkfontdir
> fc-cache
> xset fp rehash

The problem is i am not able to find out which font is actually required from unix box to be installed on linux box. Is there any way to find out which fonts are read from where ( apart from greppin in the fonts.dir ). I want to install the font which is something like "-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--10-80-75-90-p-0-iso8859-1" .....

Thank U
