    Nice :) Thanks for the update Gerard. ;)

    For anyone new to linux, and you want to install this (which is better in most cases because many distros disable feature like Java support - and the other thing would be waiting for a custom install for your distro). JRE is a prerequisite

    Here's a walkthrough instruction:

    Code:
    [B]Download the tarball[/B]
    [B]Open console and change into the directory where the tarball resides[/B] (example:  cd /home/me/downloads/browser_downloads )
    [B]Untar the package into the current directory:[/B]  tar xvzf OOo_2.0.3_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz
    [B]Change into the desktop-integration directory[/B] (example:  cd /home/me/downloads/browser_downloads/OOC680_m7_native_packed-1_en-US.9044/desktop-integration
    [B]Use ls to list the contents :[/B] ls
    [B]Copy the desktop-integration rpm that's applicable to you to the RPMS directory[/B] (example: cp openoffice.org-mandriva-menus-2.0.3-2.noarch.rpm /home/me/downloads/browser_downloads//OOC680_m7_native_packed-1_en-US.9044/RPMS )
    [B]Change into the RPMS directory[/B] (example:  cd /home/me/downloads/browser_downloads/OOC680_m7_native_packed-1_en-US.9044/RPMS
    [B]Go into superuser mode : [/B]su
    [B]Enter r00t password[/B]
    [B]Install the packages with : [/B]rpm -Uvih *rpm
    [B]When complete exit superuser mode :[/B] exit
    [B]Close console :[/B] exit
    You're done :)
