[Techtalk] Installing fonts

I wonder if anybody can help me with this one.

I use OpenOffice 1.1 on Fedora Core 2, set up to use Unicode.

I am writing an article for a newsletter, and I need to use symbols
from the International Phonetic Alphabet.  None of the fonts I have
available at the moment seems to include them, although some of the
fonts that FireFox uses clearly do, because relevant web-pages display

Presumably I need to download and install another font for use with
OpenOffice - either that, or somehow adapt whichever fonts FireFox
uses to display IPA (and I don't know which they are).  The whole
business of installing fonts is a bit of a mystery to me.  Any help
would be much appreciated, because I need to solve the problem fairly
