I use Win2K as well, and both my Office 2000 and later, Office XP had the
equation editor hidden in them.  It may be that my CIS department set them
up properly, but all I have to do to invoke it from any M$ product is go to
the menu Insert -> Object... and pick "Microsoft Equation 3.0" from the
list.  It takes a little getting used to (if you want spaces, you need to
select the "text" character style, rather than the default "Math" style" but
otherwise it's pretty intuitive to use.

When you say he "doesn't have a good equation editor" is he including the 
freebie version of mathtype that comes with Microsoft Office?  It generally 
isn't installed by default; you have to explicitly select it during 
installation, and so a lot of people do not even realize it is there.  I 
like it very much myself and I imagine the pro version Marcello mentions is 
even better.  It may be that he just doesn't or won't like mathtype; but he 
should definitely check it out first if he doesn't already know that he has

Zillions of equations created with mathtype can be found in my handouts at
