That's probably because you allow MS to preload a bunch of crap into the
background during Win '95 startup--I've seen my dad's thinkpad 560 take 5
minutes to boot Win '95 with all the MS office stuff. That's a P120
Anyway, I would suggest using the Star Office install program and
selecting the default 'user install' option in the user's home
directory. That way, all the files are in /usr/local/StarOffice3.1 and
the individual's home directory. I see no need for a Debian package for
this piece of semi-commercial software, but others may disagree.
