1.Reboot in Windows and remove those passwords when aplicable.

2. Install Office in Wine/Crossover and use it until OpenOffice provides support matching your needs.

Here's an idea: Install the latest OO beta in windows and check it against the password protected files. If it works, then your troubles are about to be over. If it doesn't work, then consider installing Microsoft's Office in Wine as I already said.

Hmm, I think I have another idea:
Quote:
su -
yum install wine
After you're done with it, search for Microsoft PPS Viewer on the internet and download it.

In the end type
Quote:
winecfg # A window will open. In there you might select XP as emulated os. Or leave it on 2000. Don't think it'll matter for now. Press OK to close it.

wine name-of-the-file.exe # And Click next...Finish
Then try opening a file with this program, which should be found in Applications-Wine folder.
