	I'm a complete novice at this, but I hope someone can help me out.
I have the Bitstream 500 font CD, which includes both Type 1 and TrueType
fonts.  I wanted to use fontinst to make virtual fonts so that I could use
some of these (in particular, the American Garamond typefaces)  with
LaTeX.  I followed the instructions in the fontinst documentation for
copying and renaming the .afm files, and wrote a short file to do the

\input fontinst.sty  

The log file resulting from TeX'ing the above follows.  Can anyone help me
out with where to go from here?

Thanks much,
Andrew Olson

If you really absolutely need more capacity,
you can ask a wizard to enlarge me.
