First off, Elves can't dual-class, only Humans can, so I assume you're talking about a multiclass Elven Fighter/Mage. Fighter/Magi can use any type of weapon without penalty. Also, they can wear any type of armour, but wearing anything other than Mage Robes or Elven Chainmail hampers spellcasting, i.e they will not be able to cast spells while wearing leather, chain/splint mail, or plate armour. Wearing a helmet or using a shield does not confer penalties however.

A Fighter/Mage is thus perfectly able to wield a sword and still cast spells, but a pure Mage, even an Elf, cannot wield a sword.

To dual-class properly, your character needs
1) to be a Human
2) to have a minimum of 15 in his/her starting class' prime ability
3) to have a minimum of 17 in the prime ability of the class you want him/her to dual to and
4) to be of 2nd level in the starting class at least.

One recommendation if you want to dual a fighter to a mage is to start by using the kensai fighter kit. the kensai can't wear armour either, so that limitation is the same as a mage. You then get all of the combat benefits of a kensai, and don't have to worry about armour (get the robe of vecna, ring of prot +2, cloack of sewers etc for AC). Dual at level 9 or 12 for best results.

I'm using this char solo, and it's great!!!

It is DUAL class, not DUEL. A duel is two person fighting, like in western.

I don't think you want to fight a class, right?
