Thanks Herbert and Michael for the advice. The suggestions worked
perfectly.

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
the possibilities at
