This (IMHO) is one of those packages that is best NOT installed from an
RPM. The openoffice.org installer does a much better job and has a
windows installer type interface. Just my 2c.

If you are using up2date, the default download directory is /var/spool/up2date.  Once you retrieve the files to the appropriate directory, then run up2date.  It will recognize that you previously downloaded the files and use them.  As far as a FTP client, I use gftp, but any ftp client that will allow restart should suffice.  And I used mirrors.kernel.org for the download as I am located more towards the US West coast than the East coast, but you should be able to use any mirror site for the download.  I would stay away from the main Fedora site as it has a heavier load than most of the mirror sites.
