[Tugindia] Using Sabon type face

I am not very familiar with LaTeX, though I use it sometimes. I would like 
to know how to use a non-standard font in my work. Specifically, I would 
like to use the "Sabon" type face. I have put in the \usepackage{sabon} in 
the preamble, but the font does not appear in the dvi file, and while 
compiling, I get a "LaTeX Font Warning : Certain font shapes were not 
available, defaults substituted." I have asked all the people I know, who 
are using LaTeX, specifically MiKTeX, but no one seems to know anything 
about it.

The sabon.sty file, and all the required .tfm and .vf files are there 
inside the \texmf tree. I am using Windows98. Any help would be much
