Alright Louis, let's give it another try. I will answer your  
questions in your order, and maybe I'll bandage my head for another  
proggie later!

        I installed the original from the Tiger disk, then I went on  
to the Apple website and upgraded it

       No. What is Fink?

       Yes. I have a LOT fonts on the 1st and 2nd hard drive

        Should I move them to my external Hard drive? What if I have  
other programs that depend on these fonts?

        Yes, I installed and tried both versions, (but not at the  
same time). Lib files are in Users/macrisci/Library/Frameworks/(then  
are in their respective  	
	     folders). I left the framework folders alone when running the  
Auqa version (I read somewhere that it was okay not to delete them).

         I have both OpenOffice and NeoOffice installed. Yes, they  
both run fine. Both boot up perfectly, and Open office does start X11  
(1.1.3, XFree86 4.40)

         Louis, I am not a newbie by any means but I've never run  
into such a stubborn program before!

         Do you have enough information now?
