indd1.52 w98 fonts flew coop - Adobe Indesign Windows

I switched to w2000 from w98, reinstalled indd1.5, and most of my fonts were gone-----reinstalled w98 & indd1.5 to see if it was the OS, no luck. Had to have had 150+ fonts before, including arial narrow which I used a bunch----it's looking like 30-40 fonts now, real basic selection. Any clue as to their destination, and how I could get them back? thanks, Mike...

    Switched how? Upgrade installs of operating systems are dangerous. Only
    a clean install should be done.

    That said, AFAIK, Arial Narrow is installed with MS Office, not Windows.
    Your other fonts could have been from anywhere.

    I would also strongly suggest you consider upgrading to ID CS. It's
    lightyears ahead of ID 1.5.

    Howdy!

    Hey, thanks for the advice, and you were right!

    Turns out the arial narrow was courtesy of MS-word.

    Would've upgraded to InDesign 2.0 or CS, but for some reason
    Adobe quit sending me the upgrade notices, which baffles me, because I own 3 different Adobe products.

    anyhow, thanks again for your help,
