[lucida] Installing Lucida fonts in TeXLive

Dear Sir or Madam:

I am current member of TUG and have just upgraded my Y&Y license 
for the Lucida fonts to the TUG license for the fonts.  I now have 
a question about how to install these fonts in the TeXLive 
distribution of LaTeX.

For years I have been using teTeX and have had no problem 
installing the fonts (I simply created a directory called 
"$/texmf/fonts/type1/lucida", copied the pfb files to this 
directory, and ran mktexlsr).  However, I have recently upgraded 
from OpenSuse 10.2 to OpenSuse 10.3.  In the process of the 
upgrade, teTeX was clobbered and replaced by TeXLive.  I am able 
to use TeXLive without the Lucida fonts, but I am completely 
unable to figure out how to install the Lucida fonts in TeXLive.  
The directory structure in TeXLive is completely different from 
that of teTeX and I have no idea how to navigate through it to 
find the correct place to put files, etc.

Just for clarification, I have the files from Y&Y, i.e., the pfb 
files have the Y&Y names (e.g., lbr.pfb).  If somebody could give 
me a set of instructions as to where I should place the pfb files, 
other packages that I may need to download, and any other things I 
need to execute (e.g., mktexlsr, updmap), I would greatly 
appreciate it.
