The cheapest way is to use FontForge at SourceForge.net: FontForge -- An Outline Font Editor (http://sourceforge.net/projects/fontforge/)

You will need X11 installed and where it is found depends on what Mac OSX disks you have. It could be on the install disk or on the Tools disk.

I have used it to convert fonts before and have not had a problem with them.

FontForge is a bit overkill.

Most Mac truetype fonts work on PCs. PC truetype fonts work on Macs. Just copy the TTF file over to the PC.

For those that don't work, try this:
TransType Pro 3.0.2 software download - Mac OS X - VersionTracker (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/15764)
