1st - it sounds like you made a cardinal mistake for new converts - trying too hard. to start with, you should have run software update and made sure your system was up to date. 10.1.5 came out this week. then go to apple and get the updater for appleworks. move apple works to the applications folder (from the os 9 applications folder). update it. I'm not sure if you can still do these steps or not, but i would try. as for font instalation - see this site's design forum (Front End) for advice on how to do it most efficintly and safely.
oh, and your appleworks will be os x now and much better.
and hopefully you haven't wiped that 6gb drive clean yet so you can do a fresh formatting and start all over.
and then there is my favorite suggestion that almost always works for me - buy a 3rd party repair program like Diskwarrior/Plus Optimizer or Techtool Pro and let them fix what you screwed up. Apple's disk repair utility is minimal. I also advise avoiding norton and symantec unless you feel ok about losing data.
