Ok ... Mac Geeks... question?:::

EDIT::: Thank you!!! tons of information on this. I appreciate it. :D

iBook (My MILs)
darwin v.7.9.0

My BIL used it to go to tucows and he clicked to download OpenOffice.
So now there's an icon on the screen that looks like a card reader, and appears to be called "OpenOffice.org 2"
There's also an exe on the desktop that is prol'y unrelated (but I'll mention it anyways) called ZangoWallsJericho.exe.

All stop.

No idea what to do with this.

I can go to the prompt and navigate to the files I suppose, but ...
The goal is for her to get a reasonable word processor. Options include; OpenOffice (Free and now! -in theory), Apple Works (couple of days to borrow it) or MS Office for Mac (but I have to order it and wait for delivery).

So the question is...

What do I do with that OpenOffice.org 2 file on the desktop (is it a cd image?)

and what office suite should I get her started using?
