What is wrong with having more than one office suite.
It has 4 web browsers:
   Firefox
   Mozilla
   Epiphany
   Konqueror

Anywhy Openoffice is just a beta and not even a stable version.

Since the Gnome office (abiword, gnumeric, etc.) are in extras, I believe that 
Koffice should be there too.

I finally did get it to install.

I had to manually install python2.3 and python-libraries2.3
then it would install using yum from the kde-redhat.org site.

I think that it was stupid of redhat to strip out apps that have been there 
since 7.2 or 7.3 even if it would have required another cd.  There could have 
been CD5:  Office apps that could have contained

Abiword
Gnumeric
Sodipodi
Scribus
Kword
Kspread
Karbon
Kchart

and some other office apps.

In fact if there is room, they should have put openoffice.org on the cd and 
installed the stable version of openoffice.org

For that matter while we are adding beta software, why not just put the 
staroffice beta on the cd as well?
