Take this file and drop it in the System Folder. A notice should appear saying something like: 'Fonts should be stored in the Fonts folder to be available to this Macintosh'. You're asked to confirm this action. All software should be closed when you're doing this as you can only see the font when you've opened a particular piece of software from scratch. And that's it.
