the DOS filename, or any filename used by the filesystem, is not usually 
considered with software that access fonts. the 'real' name of the font is 
actually embedded within the font, by the font generator program, such as 
FontLab, Fontographer, PfaEdit, etc.

To edit that, you could use PfaEdit under gnuLinux (or use cygwin under win 
doze and run pfaEdit) and open your font. go to the 'font info...' command 
and type in the font name you wish in the relevant tab.
