If you where using the centos versions this will happen for you with a 
normal upgrade with no issues.

If you are using the OpenOffice.org versions and if you want to shift 
back to the centos version, then just:

rpm -e openoffice-\*


(all one line)

yum install openoffice.org-impress openoffice.org-writer 
openoffice.org-math openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-graphicfilter 
openoffice.org-draw openoffice.org-xsltfilter openoffice.org-base
