I think the package you want is here:  http://www.linuxpackages.net/download.php?id=9788 (it's the MS core web fonts packaged for Slackware 11).

Looks like it's a .tgz which means you can simply install it.  Open a terminal, su to root, issue 'installpkg name_of_package.tgz' and that should do it.

Or if you're still using Xfce.  You can simply right click the package and then select "Install Package".

This is kinda fun!  We're quickly rebuilding our missing documentation.  lol

If the fonts wound up in /usr/X11R6/lib/fonts/TTF, as root you need to run
fc-cache
before the fonts will be usable in OOo.

If they're in your ~/.fonts directory, you still have to run fc-cache but can do it as user.

You may have to restart X before the fonts show up. I'm not sure about that.
