ms works documents

I'm converting a new user!!! ..... but the last step in her transformation requires the ability to open microsoft works documents from her dos partition!!!! I just installed redhat 8, and open office isn't doing it.

Anybody know a program that can open up .wps files?

Thanks in advance

There might be a package rpm that will do that for you. When I installed Mandrake 9.0 I vaguely remember a package like that. I didn't install it though, but I swear there is something like that out there. Is it possible to search the Mandrake rpm list?
