That's a standard X11 font family.  Your Linux distribution should
include the fonts from this family in packages with names like
xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts and xorg-x11-100dpi-fonts.  I don't know what
distro you are using, so I can't be more precise than that.

If you prefer to use a different font, please read the documentation
that comes with xboard about the options for selecting fonts from the
command line or your .Xdefaults file.
