I have found you don't even have to *copy* fonts over (presuming you are 
keeping a Win partition, that is).  I usually just switch to the 
system/Fonts directory, and type:

         ln -s /c/winnt/Fonts/*.ttf .
         ln -s /c/winnt/Fonts/*.fon .

(it is important you have the trailing dot when linking from more than 
one file)

I usually do it this way since I'm often blowing away & re-creating my 
Wine config, since I'm experimenting with getting some stubborn WinApps 
to install (such as eBay's TurboLister).  A lot quicker that copying 
files over.  (the .fon files may not even be needed, but it's one simple 
command, and hasn't crashed anything yet).
