I'd go with OpenType because it can be used more places and is more flexible.
In Distiller, make sure that Distiller is set to embed fonts, and that the directories in which your fonts are stored are listed... If you install the font properly in Windows, FM will recognize it. I don't know e-Publisher, but if it conforms to Windows conventions, there isn't any reason it wouldn't see the font.
