Clicked on the link, which opened an empty page in Safari and downloaded a .xls file.

Hmmm, Is this a Safari problem? Should I be seeing someting? What application would read such a file?

It is an Microsoft Excel spreadsheet file. If you don't have MS Excel, you should be able to view/modify the file with Open Office: http://www.openoffice.org/

I finished filling it out last night with OpenOffice. It works great. Don't seem to be any issues reading the file or saving it in the MS format.

Oh, Hey. So I'm here and its kind of like trying to find something at Home Depot.

Would somebody be able to direct me through the steps to use OpenOffice with this file?

Open up OpenOffice Calc (that's the spreadsheet module). Go to File > Open. Navigate to the location where you save the xls, select it and open it. Fill it out and hit save. OpenOffice will ask you if you are sure you want to save to a non-native format. Click yes. There you go! Email the file to the appropriate location, and you're done!
