I use OpenOffice.org all the time.  In my opinion it is far better than MS office, if not for the operation and options then for the price. Free!!  Not to mention you can convert from many different formats that MS office can not read, let alone convert.  Oh, and one more thing, far less of a chance for a virus with openoffice than MS office.

As for printing, that all works through your operating system and computer system it self.  Lexmark? isn't that your printer? and/or printer driver?  Sounds so familiar.  Either way, OpenOffice is the Linux equivalent to MS office that works on Windows machines.  It's something like 100 or 200 meg download.  A cable connection only need a few seconds to download this, don't know how many months it would take with a dial-up modem.  If you have a dial-up or other slow connection then find someone with a fast connection and have them put it on a CD for you.  (they, openoffice, may do that for you for the price of the CD(?)).

Open Office is great. I use it on my mini laptop and love it. It is FREE which is probably the most awesome thing ever. lol. It was quick to download and it's easy to use.
