    I was having trouble getting this to work and I finally stumbled onto a solution. I was using a guide I found somewhere else and it would never work, kept getting "cross-device link" errors. Anyway, here's what I did:

    Tread at your own risk, I'm not responsible for any bricked devices!
    -Requires root-

    1. Put the font I wanted on the root of my sdcard, named Clockopia.ttf
    2. Open a command prompt. You need the Android SDK installed
    3. At the prompt:
    adb shell


    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    cd /system/fonts

    mv Clockopia.ttf Clockopia.bat (I renamed the original and kept the file there just in case)

    dd if=/sdcard/Clockopia.ttf of=/system/fonts/Clockopia.ttf

    mount -o remount,ro -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

    (sorry if this has already been covered somewhere else)
