Well, Arial Narrow is a clone of Helvetica Narrow w/ is (well, was 
originally) an algorithmically condensed Helvetica.

If you don't need much you could use something like:

  \scalebox{.5}[1]{\textsf{This is narrow}}

But I think the pslatex package is out-dated, so don't use that...

To alter inter-character space but not character shapes you could use 
the soul package.
