Typing in Greek in OpenOffice under RH9

I'm a RH9 newbie. The need has arisen for me 2 use a sytem that allows me to work in 2 languages, greek and english.
Anyone with suggestions on how to configure my system so that it uses a british english default and i can toggle to change lang 2 greek?

Used google which led me to d following

"Linux, Writing and Reading Greek and Having an English Language Desktop (RedHat 9 / Gnome 2.2 Edition)"

(Sorry I can't provide d url as LQ prevents me from doing that cos I have less than 5 posts)

I still have problems with the section "gtk-1.x applications".

comments from Anyone with a dual language system or anyone who knows about such will be highly appreciated.

You may put a second language(keyboard lay-out) in KDE Control center i think.
Also try
Maybe you'll find some info there.
Do you have greek fonts installed?
