Other than navigating to the Volumes directory as indicated from within the Open file dialog of OpenOffice.org, you should be able to see your files directly on your flash drive from your desktop, assuming that it mounts correctly on the desktop (I have not met a flash disk yet that doesn't on Mac OSX). If you press Ctrl and click at the same time on the file that you want to open, you can then choose "Open with..." and select OpenOffice.org from the list of applications. You might have to switch the view to show all available applications, because for some reason Apple doesn't consider X11 apps to be real applications. You might even have an option in the Open with dialog to tell the system to always open files of that type with the version of OpenOffice.org you have selected.
