Exporting Fonts Mathematica 4.2 Linux

I am running Mathematica 4.2 for students under Redhat Linux 7.2. Can someone 
explain to me why I get this behavior and what I can do to fix it.
When I run Mathematica in X with the graphical user interface by typing "mathematica",
I can run the following commands and get the expected output, namely a plot with the 
plot label in a big font. However, when I run the "math" command and get the text 
interface and run the same code I do not get the label in a big font.  

cc = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}, {PlotLabel -> StyleForm["Label", FontSize -> 60]}]
Export["test.eps", cc, "eps"]

I believe that this is due to the different method in which the math and mathematica 
commands setup fonts. Is there anyway to get the behavior that I want? 

As a side note when I use the old syntax of 


I get it to work.  However, I would like not to use this syntax as it
has several limitations.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
