I had this problem too. You need to install Java first. But you have to do it the 'Debian way' - 

1. Download Java Runtime Environment from eg. www.sun.com and chmod +x it.

2. apt-get install java-package (like kernel-package, but for building java). also install build-essential if you don't already have it.

3. cd to java download directory and: make-jpkg <java_version_name>.bin

4. blah blah blah with the license agreements.

5. When your java .deb package is built just install it with dpkg -i . A mozilla/firefox plugin should be set up automatically if you use these browsers, and you should now be able to proceed with your open office install.
