Can I run OpenOffice and MS Office on the same machine?

I received a free CD of OpenOffice and I desperately want to try it out. The only problem is, I already have Windows and MS Office -- my computer is not currently running Linux. Do you foresee any conflict between OO and MS Office running on one machine?

I have Microsoft Office, 1.0.1, 1.1 and StarOffice 6.0 all running on my Windows 2000 machine. There are no problems with conflicts. Install and enjoy!
