[Image-SIG] Image fonts

I want to draw text onto a JPEG image. On Windows I have TrueType fonts 
and font = ImageFont.truetype("Arial.ttf",12) works. On my ISP's FreeBSD 
system it does not - the resource is unknown. So I need to supply PIL 
with some fonts - but I have not the foggiest how to go about this.
The BSD is  "FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE ", Python is  "Python 2.3.4" and I think 
that the  PIL library is 1.1.5.   I am pretty sure PIL is at 1.1.5 (is 
there anyway I can find this out?).  I presently can't even see how to 
find out what fonts are available let alone install additonal ones.  Any 
help much appreciated.
