    Do you have Synaptic installed? First order of business is to grab that, as it makes this kind of stuff a lot easier. Do a search via synaptic or via apt-cache for "freetype" and "xft." Make sure both libraries are installed and up-to-date. For mozilla-xft, it should be in Debian Unstable under the "web" category. I believe you have to be running unstable to use it though.

    I had massive font rendering problems when I first put on Debian, but installing mozilla-xft made them perfect.
