I am writing a LaTeX guide using several fonts. But I have a problem...

Indeed I was trying to use Palatino fonts with narrow capitals 
(Helvetica Narrow), espacially phvbo8rn but I got this error message 
when I TeXiFyed:

Loading 'cmr10' instead.

I don't know what to do... In fact I declare before \begin{document} :



and then, in the document I try to use palatino fonts :

\subsection{Fonte Palatino : le package \texttt{palatino}}



Il choisit de l'Helvetica pour le sans-serif. Cependant cette
fonte à la bon goût d'exister dans un nombre impressionnant de
variantes : c'est disponible en \textsf{\textsl{penché}} (pas
d'italique), en \textsf{\textsc{PETITES CAPITALES}}, en
\textmc{\textsf{condensé}}, en \textmc{\textsl{\textsf{condensé
penché}}}, en \textsc{\textmc{\textsf{PETITES CAPITALES

\textsf{\textbf{\textsf{\textsl{gras penché}}}}, en
\textsf{\textsc{\textbf{PETITES CAPITALES GRASSES}}}, en\\
\textbc{\textsf{gras condensé}}, en \textsl{\textbc{\textsf{penché
gras condensé}}}, et en \textsc{\textbc{\textsf{PETITES CAPITALES

What's wrong?

Could you help me?

I would like to use the following package "eurofont", "europs", 
"eurosym" and "eurosans" but I don't manage to see the euro symbole
of each package... any ideas?
