To ensure that the lessons appear on your system with the correct fonts, you may need to install some font files. The lessons in this book use fonts that come on the After Effects application DVD. If you already have these fonts on your system, you do not need to install them. Otherwise, you can install the After Effects fonts by copying them to the Program Files/Common Files/Adobe/Fonts (Windows) or Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts (Mac OS) folder on your hard disk. If you install a Type 1, TrueType, OpenType, or CID font into these local Fonts folders, the font appears only in Adobe applications.
how do i do the above when there are no font files on the DVD????

Sounds like the info is outdated. Ever since AE7, the fonts they are probably talking about (Myriad, Minion, Adobe Garamond etc.) are installed with every Adobe product in your system directory, so there should be no need to do anything....
