If you have KDE 2.2.1, you can run "konsole --noxft", which will turn off 
anti-aliased fonts in the konsole and allow you to use all the standard fonts 
that you could before.

For other apps, if you with to turn off AA fonts, just export QT_XFT=0 before 
you run the app and it will disable AA for it as well (this was the way to 
turn off AA fonts in Konsole before they added the switch).

I hope this is what you are looking for...
