Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

General Internet error
I recently setup a fat32 partition to share with Windows and I had a .doc Word file that I wanted to attempt to open up in Open Office (where it was originally created). When I tried to open it, it said that a General Internet error occured and then it closed down Open Office. I have Suse 10.0. My understanding was that Open Office could open .doc files.
Thanks in advance,

Indeed OpenOffice will open .doc files
Several things to try:
Open a different .doc file
Create a new .doc file, shut down OpenOffice (OOo), then open the new file.
Try opening the problem file with OOo already running, and by simply double-clicking the file.
If you have a Windows system, see if it will open there.
If it is just one file that misbehaves, then it is likely corrupted
