    hi. i read all documentation, but still have some difficulties. no need to answer to all 7, even an answer to 1 question will be appreciated.

    i installed mandrake 9.0

    1. which is the easiest way to add truetype fonts (i want to add some Greek fonts from Windows)

    2. how do i install the rpms from 2nd and 3rd installation cd?

    3. i opened kpaint but when i click to the left-side ruler, the program closes, and a pop-up window informs me that this is a bug and i shall report it to authors. how do i make the small colour boxes to appear (like those at microsoft paint. at mandrake 8.2 those small colour boxes were there by default. i want this because this computer is for school kids)

    4. i installed mandrake 8.2 at 3 computers. after some time i installed mdk 9. the 1 of 3 computers, both times would not show the graphical start screen. it has 3 options instead of 4 at start. how do i make it to show graphical start-up (you know, like a filling row instead of the black screen with all starting procedures and green OKs)

    5. at kword in mdk 9, i can turn to Greek language and write some txt. i must be too lame, because i cannot find the "tone" of the letters (a small line above some letters. in english, this line or point is standard at "i" and "j" letters)

    6. i want to create a floppy shortcut on desktop. i right-click, create new, floppy. but the shortcut doesn t work. which path shall i add at icons properties in order to work. for a cdrom shortcut?

    7. a floppy of windows, how can it be used at linux?

    these are all my problems :)
