[K12OSN] StarOffice

I have done this on several versions of K12LTSP.  It's the same as doing 
it with any distro that already has OO.o on it, be it RHL 9, Fedora, 
Mandrake, Slackware (yes, it's a manual install there, but pretty 
simple), or otherwise.  StarOffice is worth it, in my opinion, if you 
need the extra input filters like the WordPerfect or WordStar 
converters.  Also, if you have a need to go with specifically the Adabas 
database, then go w/ StarOffice.  Personally, I find OpenOffice.org more 
than sufficient, because I have yet to run into a WordPerfect or 
WordStar document in a very long time.  StarOffice and OpenOffice.org, 
in my experience, seem to have the same quality to open MS 
Word/Excel/PowerPoint files, and this is with embedded Visio diagrams 
and such.
