Tank Wars booting from floppy

I'm playing this game Tanks Wars with my kid (he's only 4 yo, but hey You can't start young enoug is suppose) however somehow i can't seem to get the game to boot from floppy.
I've created a starup sequence and ealso assigned a fonts drawer as it states in the description but it doesn't do the trick.

Is there anyone who can help?

Have you copied the fonts from the archive into the directory you've assigned for Fonts: ?

In the Zone, it required diskfont.library but the older version from Workbench 1.3 to work on older machines.

I know, I only wanted to notice the author of the game is also a local Global Moderator by accident ;-)

@ Galahad: Thanks it works! Could I have know myself that the diskfont.library was missing? I don't know what it does.

@ Predseda: I've tried to contact Graham before but the mail adres enclosed with the game bounced back the emails I've sent.
