apt-get remove tends to leave some configuration files lying around - if
you look at a listing from dpkg -l, all the packages with a status of
"rc" are removed, but with configuration files left installed. You can
clean those up with "dpkg -P [package name]".

I didn't see in this thread if you were running stable, testing, or
unstable. If you are running testing or unstable, just use "apt-get
install openoffice.org". If you are using stable, see Debian Backports
(www.backports.org) for a source for the OpenOffice.org backports to
stable (Latest News, 2003/12/17).
