    you can check out my "Easy to Use Linux Guide" - a lot of it is based on my experience with red hat, but most of it can be used to any linux distro.

    the link is below in my sig. I am more of a red hat guy, but you can pm me if you want if you need help. This forum is pretty good too, there are some knowledgeable people on it.
    Good luck and welcome to linux!

    That would be OpenOffice.org (yes, it is actually named OpenOffice.org).

    yes, openoffice.org is a great program and to add to dolda's response, you can save your files in linux format and also in windows format while you are in linux
    if you use red hat 9, it comes with it
