-fn will work...use fonts from xfontselect (maybe it's called xfontsel).
Great program.  If you have it and you havn't changed the default
afterstep menus, you can find it under Start|Accessories|System.  That'll
help you figure out the formatting that should look something like this:

-*-*-utopia-r-*-*-24-*-*-*... (how many stars and dashes is it anyhow?)

   I like to not bother with the whole command line stuff and slip it all
into my ~/.Xdefaults  (aterm*font:  -*-*-and-so-on-and-so-on-)
