Uninstalling fonts (was Problems with FM 6.0 installation)

Thomas' message prompted me to have a look at my Fonts folder. I run Win2K 
and mistakenly thought that ATM was continuing to handle my PostScript 
fonts. I also knew my system was burdened by too many unnecessary fonts, 
and sure enough, there are 747 of them on my system. It is time to 
uninstall a bunch of these.

I remember a discussion wherein we were warned not to uninstall certain 
fonts lest we hose our system. Can someone tell me which fonts are required 
by FrameMaker and Windows?
