I'm under Mandrake 8.2.

Thanks for the quick response!
I tried it. Unfortunately, it didn't work: "Command not found".
Something must be really messed up in my installation, which in itself 
would be nothing new!
I wandered through the /usr/bin, and found mf and mft, but no mfw. Then 
I searched for it, but no mfw.
What exactly is mfw, and where can I find it?
