Open Office is all you really need. If you want something more simple there's Abiword. Abiword has tons of plugins to add features to it but Abiword has a different way of doing some things that Open Office.
For photo editing use GIMP. The only thing it doesn't have is red-eye removal. It has plugins for making panoramas and tons of other stuff. For something more simple try ShowPhoto. For an album/gallery try f-spot.
Kaffeine and VLC media player will also play DVD movies. It's up to you which one you like.
The word processor in Open Office can make web pages. Scribus is very good for desk top publishing.
Picasa works on Linux, I use it along with gimp, gthumb, phatch and ufraw. for all my digital-photography. Google for Gimp plugins, there's tons of them. Others to try are acidrip, audacity and easytag,
Gthumb, is used to download the images from your digicam and display them.
Phatch, is used to batch process your images, say resize them or rename plus other uses.
Ufraw, processes the raw data files from your digicam, if you save them in the raw format as opposed to jpeg.

We don't need it for anything super complicated but is there something I can install that we can play around with to see if we can come up with a nice layout and such before we actually put it all together online?
