(Yesterday) I asked about a possible conflict with the combination of
4.1.3, OW 3.0, Newsprint 1.0 and the 1.0 SBUS drivers. I logged in
today to 20 answers! Thanks to those who responded so quickly. The
problem appears to have a couple of solutions:

1 Upgrade to Newsprint 2.0
2 Install the OW 2 subset with Newsprint 1.0. After installing
        this, the fonts directory can be removed and symlinked to the
        OW 3 fonts dir to save space (which on an IPC with 2 x 207Mb
        discs running various CAD packages is tight).

Looks like I will do 2 and suggest 1 to the people who have money to
spend. The following people replied to my query Again thanks for the
quick response.
