Hmmm....I tried installing their rpms but openoffice.org-2.0 won't
start.  It just hangs.  I don't get any feedback from running it from
the command line or with -v.   I'd love to be able to use this so we
can use the new oo-Impress but still have tried-and-trueness of our 
oo-1.1.2.   Any ideas about this?  We're running 4.2el on Centos
x86_64.  They say in their readme that it's possible to run 2 along
side 1.x.  Their generic installaion instructions say to use -Uivh but
opted to leave out the U.



Thanks,
Peter
