This is a problem with Windows. Get a copy of the TweakUI utility (It is a Microsoft Power Toy that I believe is on the win98 CD or I know you can download it from Microsoft).

You can opt to "Repair Font Folder" from within this utility. After running this and rebooting all should be well. The menu item should appear again and ytou should be able to drag and drop fonts into the folder.

Cheers.

Get to the command prompt and switch to the Windows folder by typing the following command:

cd\windows

Now type the following command:

attrib +s +r fonts

Shut down and restart Windows.

You should now have the "install new font" option in your fonts folder.
