You'll have to find out what they're using for authenticating accounts.
 I would have guess MS Active Directory, but you say you're a Novell
house so I'm not so sure.  It is possible to do what you are asking, but
I wouldn't say for sure until I know more details.

One thing to watch out for when working on an OpenOffice document
between Windows and Linux machines is that those 2 systems usually have
different fonts installed.  This will make the document look different
depending on what machine it's viewed on.
