Which Garamond though?
This is trivial if one has the (commercial) Adobe Garamond Type 1
font files --- as you noted it's one of the examples.
Won't get you math though. Alan Hoenig does discuss this a bit in his
book _TeX Unbound_ however.
S P Suresh and Peter Dyballa's suggestion of using URW Garamond is
good if acceptable to the publisher, but if you're submitting a .pdf
you'll probably need to do a bit more than just change the font (set
up margins, chapter openers, type sizes &c.)
Probably, on Windows it'll be easier since MikTeX has a facility for
loading package over the 'net.
