[Ilugc] [OT] Tamils fonts for Wine...

Hi everybody,

Some days ago, in my Linux advocacy process :-), I remove an old Windows 
98 and install a fresh Mandriva 2006 distribution on the computer of my 
neighbor.
Everything is fine except one thing. A old indian software of astrology 
(LifeSign), which now runs nice with Wine can not find the tamil fonts. 
Actually before formating the Win98 disk I save the astrology software 
directory but I didn't notice that 2 usefull TTF files were located in 
C:\Windows\font directory and loose them.
My neighbor lost the original floppies where the installer is (it is 4 
years old) so I can't retreive theses files.
However, my neighbor is a registred user (this is not a piracy version) 
but when I contact the technical support of the software editor, either 
they do not reply, either they advise me to buy a full new version. (BTW 
it is Life Sign software and I am not very happy with their way they 
manage this problem)
Do anyone of us has the following files ? (I try with other tamil fonts 
but the software want explicitly these 2 files)
AVFTAM1B.TTF and AVFTAM1N.TTF

Thank you for your help.

S.L.
