It works for me (I think :-), in woody and a geforce 2 mx ...  "Qt_XFT=1 
kwrite" doesn't complain ...I just followed the instructions. A short resume :

* install nvidias drivers.
* Change ?nv? to ?nvidia? in XF86Config-4 
* I load the following modules in XF86Config-4
	Load        "dbe"   # Double buffer extension
	SubSection  "extmod"
		Option    "omit xfree86-dga"   # don't initialise the DGA extension

	Load        "type1"
	Load        "freetype"
	Load        "glx"

* restart your x-server
* test it and enable AA-support in control center

I do however just run xfs, and not any xfs*tt servers. It have perhaps 
something to do with it. I do have two problems, kde studio for some reason 
doesn't reconize true type font in it's editor window, it doesn't look good 
when it trying to use the old ones. My second problem is konsole, there I 
must run ?QT_XFT=0 konsole? (from a konsole :-/ ) to get the font correct.

My selection of fonts in control center is "?georiga?", "?courier new?", 
"?georiga"?, "georiga?", "comic sans ms?", "?century schoolbook"?, "?arial?" 
and I have "?times new roman?" in konqueror.

I hope it helps
