thizlinux on winders 98
recently put ThizLinux Supreme Office Suite 3.08 on a friends pooter to try out. He has just uninstalled it, but the MS office suite (already there) is having trouble loading word/excel/access etc files and particularly *.dot template files. I've tried to change the associations (right click, open with - open all files with this etc) but the changes have not taken root globally and a number of the icons are still not showing. Any suggestions greatly appreciated as i forgot to image the system before installing. Thank You!
