I would like to remove any remnants of the OO org version and install
the CentOS version with yum. I believe I installed the CentOS version,
with yum, last night, without problems.

However, since I also removed that package for menus, there is nothing
in the Applications/Office menu for any of the OpenOffice.org
applications. How can I restore the ability to launch the applications
from the menu? Thank you, again, for your time and help!
