If all your fonts are in one directory, you can do something like
sudo cp *.ttf /usr/share/fonts/truetype/
You can check that this will do what you expect it to do by issuing
in the directory from which you are doing the copy.
If you really *must* do it the GUI way <grin> , you can start nautilus with
(it will probably complain about session authentication, but still start
then do the drag-and-drop thing. If you do that, be *very* careful
though... and close nautilus at the earliest opportunity. It's just too
easy to break your system if you forget that nautilus is running as root.
I would do the batch copy as above, personally, from the command line.
