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

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

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)
