I suppose that usb connection works, so he can push them to device via adb.
Here is the fonts folder.
Or he can use Android commander: to push them in system with an easier way.

Sorry, I'm not a linux expert and I don't know exactly which commands you must give. For this I suggested Android commander, cause you can drag & drop the folder to device's system folder like you do in windows file explorer.

You can also push the folder along with files with the Android SDK... It's easier as it is GUI based...

1. Unpack the zip file into a folder
2. Connect Tattoo via USB, start recovery, open a terminal and type adb start-server
3. cd into the fontfolder: cd fontfolder
3. PATH\TO\adb push . /system/fonts (please note the DOT!!!! sign)

You're done.

You need to remount the filesystem with the read-write permission.
Before typing "PATH\TO\adb push . /system/fonts" you need to execute "PATH\TO\adb remount"

If you type

adb shell

Do you see a # or a $ ? (if you see a $ something has gone wrong with the root)
