GIMP saving problem

I apologise if this is inappropriate, but I am having trouble saving GIMP images in Windows 98, prior to changing over to Linux - and here seems the best source of nous.

Having aquired with TWAIN, each time I try one of the SAVE methods, for any IMAGE TYPE, I get the message :-

"PANGO Warning (recursed) ** couldnt load font "MS Sans Serif 10" falling back to "Sans 10" aborting"

and GIMP shuts down completely.

I believe that GIMP is compatible with Windows, although it is a Linux program - and it installed OK.

Are these gimp formatted images or are you using the Gimp in Windows? I'm confused... Gimp is compatible in Windows if you download the Windows installer and it's required dependencies. Though I've never run it on Win98, that could be the problem however.. more details is always helpful.

Sorry for confusion. I have installed the Windows version of GIMP on my Windows 98 (FAT32), and it aquires scanned pictures via TWAIN OK.

I can crop and load into GIMP etc. but, when I try to save the end result to a folder, I get the error message described before. Clicking the OK in the error message window then exits the whole GIMP program.
