The dependencies you're running into are the java rpms that are also
dependent upon openoffice.  If you just remove the java rpms and/or open
office (one should also remove the other if using yum), you can install
the jre java rpm.  Then you can reinstall open office and it will allow
you to do it with whatever dependencies it needs.

I just deselect openoffice during isntalls for now, then once setup, I
install it *when* I am ready for it.
