This might be a silly question, but running Open Office Portable from a flash drive, while on a Mac computer, wouldn't work, right?

It depends on whether the Mac has Crossover Office or Parallels installed. If it does, then it should work. Be warned though that both are incredibly slow.
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
I'm a Mac user and have portableApps so all my favorite apps are available when I have to go into a Windows environment. On my Mac I have OOo 3 installed (lovely with its Aqua interface) and before that OOo2 using X11.
With either OOo3 or OOo2 I accessed documents on my flash drive created when using a Windows machine. THere's no problem; other than remember to nagivate the directory structure to get tot he documents on the flash drive.
Personall I woulnd't install a Windows emultor on a Mac just to be able to run OOo. TGiven that nothing I need is available Wndows-only I don't need Microsoft eating up additional diskspace in order for me to run a Windows version of a product that I can get in an Apple Mac native form. So I'd ditch the idea of doing that and install OOo3 for Mac OS X and leave yourself diskspace.
