Hi Marcin

If you have a working TeXlive thats ok. You can use this. - Another 
approach is to take a minimal distribution from Pragma. I have both on 
my computer.Hans's ditribution does perfectly what I need. If you want 
to stay with ConTeXt then I see no reason to take on board more than 
Hans provides in his minimal distribution.

The easiest way to pick up ConTeXt is to start with the "ConTeXT an 
excursion" manual. A good place for info and tips is the ConTeXt wiki
(http://contextgarden.net/Main_Page)

Seting up the bodyfont is is basically not difficult, but it has changed 
in time ... Provided you use the latest ConTeXt:

For Antykwa Torunska the following shoud work
    	\usetypescript[antykwa-torunska][texnansi]
    	\definetypeface
		[myfont]
		[rm]
		[serif]
		[antykwa-torunska]
		[default]
		[encoding=texnansi]
  	\setupbodyfont[myfont,rm,12pt]

For Antykwa Poltawskiego it will be:
  	\usetypescript[antykwa-poltawskiego][texnansi]
  	\definetypeface
		[myfont]
		[rm]
		[serif]
		[antykwa-poltawskiego]
		[default]
		[encoding=texnansi]
  	\setupbodyfont[myfont,rm,12pt]


Success
