Opening files in OSX - opens VMware Fusion

Hi

I have Pages 08 and I have found it useful to be able to open word documents in Pages. However, since I installed Vista on Boot Camp and used VMware Fusions to use it within OSX, when I want to open word documents (.doc), it boots up my virtual machine. I can quick view any documents, but to open it in Pages I have to right click and open with Pages. If I say 'always open with Pages' it will always open that document with Pages, but any other docs will again boot up my virtual machine. I don't want the hassle of selecting Pages from the open with application list.

Any ideas on how to solve this?

Dave

Right click on any .doc files and select "Get Info". From there, choose Pages under "Open with:" and then select the "Change All..." button. Doing this will force all .doc files to open in Pages
