Thanks Herbert and Michael for the advice. The suggestions worked  

I still have one question, however: In which directory are all the  
fonts stored?

Thanks again.

[NB: The following is from Michael Sharpe]

It depends on whether you want to use a calligraphic font as a text  
font, or just need for additional math symbols. In the latter case,  
\usepackage{mathrsfs} gives you the rsfs fonts, invoked with \mathscr  
rather than \mathcal. If you were looking for text fonts, check out
