I'm trying to use the New Century Schoolbook font in a book I'm
typesetting in LaTeX under RedHat 7.3. I'm using the "newcent" package
found in /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/psnfss/newcent.sty

Other than the comment lines, the .sty file contains the following:

[2000/01/12 PSNFSS-v8.1
NewCenturySchoolbook font as default roman (SPQR)

When I try to run latex on the file (via emacs), the log contains the

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.1) (format=latex 2002.4.12)  5

LaTeX Font Info:    No file OT1pncr.fd. on input line 7.
LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `OT1/pncr/m/n' undefined
(Font)              using `OT1/cmr/m/n' instead on input line 7.

...after which it proceeds to build the output in the defaul "cmr" font.

It seems to be looking for a file named "OT1pncr.fd" (or possibly
"OT1pncr.fd."?) on the system. The closest matches I see to the filename


A google search for "ot1pncr" comes up with nothing.

Am I missing a file that I should have, and can I find it somewhere? Or
is there something else I should have or do?

Thanks for any info...
