Can I run MS Word XP from Ubuntu Dapper (KDE)

When I myself have to write word documents I use openoffice. But I have some documents which require MS Word. The indentation is lost and this makes it tedious to read or edit the docs in Openoffice. I read some where that we can launch MS word in linux using wine. I tried that but it did not work. I personally use Openoffice. The docs that I have are not written by me and moreover it is to big to rewrite it again.

So could you please help me.

May I ask you what is wrong with that
you need to use a privative, expensive, closed-source software like
