[clug] Dealing with Font Clashes

I've been loaned a laptop with a Debian (knoppix) distribution.

Normally things work as expected [my German is not useful, though]

I imported some OpenOffice docs from my RH8 systems to it.

The 'double quote' marks display as '?'
I'd presumed that I didnt have enough fonts loaded,
but looking at it more, I think I have a font clash - the same font
described in two font families [uru & xf86 I think]
The font is "Nimbus Roman No 9"

I havent googled or RTFM yet.
Does anyone have any quick pointers or should I STFW & RTFM and ask again?
