This the next level of addon pack making for me and I haven't sought any help with it from any of the RVM Gurus, so I hope everything works as it should. It installs fine locally on my working system here (Win2k3) so if any of y'all have problems with using this in a slipsteamed build please let me know asap.
Please note that this utility will ONLY work with Windows TrueType and OpenType fonts. If you want to install Type 1 or PostScript fonts you will need to use Adobe Type Manager for them.

Sue Fisher: The Font Thing
The Font Thing is a freeware program for managing TrueType fonts in Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0 (Note: I can also confirm that it works AOK in XP, Win2000 and Win2003).
* Browse installed and uninstalled fonts
* Browse fonts in subfolders as a single combined list
* View sample text and individual characters in your choice of colours
* Change sample text "on the fly" or easily switch between your own standard text samples
* View detailed font information
* Print font samples
* Associate notes with fonts
* Install or uninstall any number of fonts at once
* Load (and unload) any number of fonts for temporary use
* Copy or delete any number of font files at once
* Rename font files to avoid file name conflicts
* Filter fonts according to their type
* Group fonts into collections for easier management
* Use multiple font windows simultaneously for easy font comparison and management..
This is by far the very best freeware font utility I have ever had the good fortunate to stumble across and it even does a better job than 90% of the commercial graphics font managers I have experimented with over the years.
