trouble getting Mathematica to work remotely under X-Win32


Hi,

I'm having trouble getting Mathematica 5 (installed on a campus Unix
server) working remotely on my Windows 2000 machine, where I'm using
X-Win32 (version 5.0.3).  I've obtained PCF fonts from Wolfram at

  http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/unix/general/latestfonts.html

put them in a new Math_PCF directory within ...\X-Win32\Lib\Fonts,
added the directory to my fontpath, and reset the X server.  I still
get the following error:

  The Mathematica fonts are not properly installed on your system. 
Without these fonts, typeset mathematical expressions cannot be
displayed properly.

and then the warning:

  Unable to find font with family Mathematica1, weight Plain, slant
Plain, and size 12.  Substituting Courier.

and I don't get any nice mathematical signs to work with.  

Any help would be much appreciated!

Best,

Roger Levy
