Apparantly you have looked more into the detailles than I did. Thanks. :o)
You are right, according to the link you sent, KOffice 1.1 should be able to 
run under Potato and KDE 2.1.x, with a few minor shortcommings.

ftp://kde.debian.net/ is publically announced to be the place to get KOffice 
If my memory serves me well the original poster had difficulty finding the 
1.1 packages, and frankly so do I.
It seems to be still the beta packages there, so if we want KOffice 1.1 we 
will either have to wait for some intelligent person to make the debs, or we 
will have to attempt to compile the source ourselves.


By the way Nick, when replying to a post on the list, then don't cc the 
poster unless he specifically asks you to. If he's on the list he will get 
your answer twice. Once from the list and once from you.
Just for the fun of it I just cc'ed you this, just to prove the point. :o)
