I think that Jesse Vincent ported calibre to run on a Kindle 2, didn't he? I think that it used a loop-mount filesystem, as I recall. It may need some work to run it on newer kindles.
EDIT: "Savory allows you to read .epub and .pdf files on your Kindle. It does this by converting these documents to Mobipocket format ebooks using Calibre."
Unless there have been updates to the version of calibre that he ported, it may not have .DOC file support (but you could add it while adding touchscreen support ).
If this got updated, we would not need to be tied to a host PC to convert our documents.
