hi guys. Quick Q, how can i restore my default font folder?

Extensis Suitcase X1 has botched something up good. Pretty much, it loaded a good 300 fonts or so, into my apple font folder one day when it decided to say F U and CRASH

So now, word wont open, it hangs at "optimizing font menu appearance" which, ever since suitcase was installed showed up BLANK

My times new roman is some scratchy cryptic font. i think the only one that sitll works right is ARIAL

Theres got to be a way to get the original without an OS re-install. What can i do guys? thanks in advance

The easiest thing to do would be to get access to another Mac and zip the /Library/Fonts folder and then unzip that and overwrite yours. Otherwise you might try a program called Pacifist to extract the Fonts out of your install CD. They will most likely be in a archive.pax.gz file.
