I've been able to install fonts packaged with .pfm font metrics OK under
XP. I haven't needed any that I only have in .pfb/.afm or .pfa/.afm
format yet, but I understand it's possible to convert .afm format
metrics to .pfm format, so that could be one possible approach.
Failing that, you should be able to tell Scribus to search the directory
with your fonts in it as an additional font path. It should be able to
understand the fonts even if Windows can't.

Some good fonts are available from Artifex Software as part of GhostPCL:
There are also more links to quality free fonts on the Scribus website.
