For fonts I don't use very much, I keep them in a folder, not installed. I
just double click the font to view it before launching Photoshop (or
anything else) and then for the lifetime of Photoshop being open the font is
'installed'. Works great. I'm using Win2K but this works on 98 and 95 at
least, in my experience.

Hmmm - I just tried this to double-check with PS 5.5, and the new font
appears in the menu but right at the bottom, out of alphabetic order. Maybe
you're seeing that?
