    Now I know it's probably not th done thing being a penetration testers distro and all but i thought id give it a go.

    So i would like to hear from anyone who has installed Open Office and how they went about it or perhaps someone could shed some light on the error message i'm getting.

    System locale: en_US
    Root privileges
    OS: Linux
    Mode: installation
    Path to packages: /root/apps/open office/OOH680_m17_native_packed-1_en-US.9310/RPMS/

    Default Thank you kurt

    kurt_kabayans instructions are spot on.

    Thank you so much, and then to go on to explain th command and work path entries for the menu item was fantastic.

    I installed OOo_2.4.1_LinuxIntel_install_wJRE_en-US.tar.gz and it still went off with out a hitch.

    Now all that i do can be accompanied with documentation th punters will love it.

    I am eternally grateful and hope other people come across this gem.

    You have my respect.
