MY MAC DOESN'T RECOGNIZE THE MS OFFICE 2011 FREE DOWNLOAD

Hi, I need help with downloading the free MS OFFICE 2011 for Mac. My Mac is an iMac 2004-2008 w/250 GB HD, 2 GIG memory, 2.16 Gighz intel dual microprocessor, loaded w/Mac OS 10.6.8. I read the software and hardware requirements on Microsoft website so it's for MAC OS 10.5.8 minimum. When I download the dmg file my mac says: cannot recognize file so he cannot open it further. What's happening? Can I do something to make it open and install this freebie ?
Thanks, appreciate any help or advice.
