Question opening documents from MSW (.doc)


Greetings!
I give thanks to the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ because I have just accessed internet from the Kurumin (Brazilian) Linux in a live cd.
It was difficult to understand how to do it.
Now, my next problem is that I have tryed to open a document in MSW format (.doc), and I could not do it.
I think that it is because that would be an old or incomplet version of the open office.
Can I open documents in .doc format in the open office?
Thank you for the linux project.

You can open .doc files in almost every wordprocesser in linux, what version of Openoffice do you have and what version of MS Word was it made with?

Dear friends,
Thanks.
At Saturday, I, using the live CD, opened the document from Word, and also accessed the internet.
Just after these things, my CD Drive had a defilement. Thus, a friend of mine substituted it by another, which I had.
The version of open office is the 1.1 and the version of the MS Word is 2000.
I pretend to install the Ubuntu version.
Thank you, and thanks be given to God.
Bye.
