The MIME type should be "application/msword"

?? Are you using a different version of OpenOffice than came with RH
8.0? If you've got the version that came with RH 8.0, just put "oowrite"
in this field.

I believe in another message in this thread you mentioned using
Konqueror. If this is the case, in Konqueror, go to Settings->Configure
Konqueror->File Associations. Under Known Types, expand application and
select msword. If there is an entry for OpenOffice.org Writer in the
preferred application list, make sure it's at the top. If there isn't,
click on "Add" and navigate the menu structure to select OO.o Writer.
