Lanny Lars' advice is if you want to use the OO.org provided rpms (it tells yum to ignore the centos oo rpms, in particular it prevents yum from installing the openoffice.org-ure rpm and breaking your OO.org installed openoffice, as I mentioned). In your other email you say you want to get rid of the OO.org version, and install the centos one. In this case you don't want to have that exclude line in yum.conf. It will prevent you from installing the centos version.
