          Draw a (vector) circle of an appropriate size. Make both edge and fill
          transparent. Type out the text. Select both the text and the circle.
          Text>Attach to Path[1]. Adjust as needed.

          [1] That's for FW6; it may have changed, but the command should still be
          there. The shortcut is Ctrl-Shift-Y.

            Did you try Text > Attach to path? Just create a circle path and some text, select them both, and try that.

              What you want to do is attach text to a path.

              Draw a circle and type some text. Select both then go to the top menu
              bar - Text > Attach to Path.

              Play with the settings in the property panel to make it fit like you want.
