cp .ttf files (from win machine) for those fonts & use spadmin to install it.

to Open Office type directory or to the system type1 directory ? or both?
its maybe so silly but i really newbie to linux.

thanks

Adding it to the system Type1 dir will make the fonts visible to all programs.

ah finnaly i made it.
copy font from windoze machine n run ./spadmin from /usr/bin/openoffice and adding it to openoffice.

to make visible to all program i should copy it to the type1 directory in the system, ah thank you all for helping me here.

i think u can open any version of m$office doc with open office 1.1.0

Yes any version of *.doc files can be opened using OO.org
I think the .doc format hasnt changed since MS Office 97 ( i.e. '97, 2000 and XP have almost same formats)
