You should have the fonts already installed in Windows XP, what you need to do is install the East Asian language pack.

What you'll need is the IME translator for Microsoft office. Just go search IME in word's help or in the microsoft search and you'll find it. Just be sure to install the right one.

Yes, installing the language pack will do it. I've noticed that the Chinese fonts also work with Japanese, such as MingLiu and SimHei among others. I prefer fonts that look like calligraphy because stroke counting is easier.
