    I believe they are kept either in /library/fonts or /system/fonts. I use Suitcase so I can't say for sure.

    If you can spare the change, get Suitcase or Fontreserve to manage larger font collections...

    You can also put fonts in ~Users/yourusername/Library/Fonts.

    I believe there is a limitation on which applications will see the fonts you drop in. Probably no classic apps, few carbons, etc.

    On a 5 banana accuracy scale, this post gets 2.5 bananas.

    If you have Mac OS 9 installed on your iMac, as well as your iMac, you can place your fonts in the OS 9 fonts folder.
