Filipe: Thank you for the very quick and very detailed reply. Much
appreciated! Follow on questions: (a) Should I uninstall the
OpenOffice.org 2.3 group  I installed with the distro? (If so, can you
give me the yum command to uninstall the entire OpenOffice.org group?)
(b) If I should leave OO 2.3 as is, should I install OpenOffice 3.1
into /usr/local?   Lanny
