Make sure the file has "x" permissions, then as root,
issue a "./so........... /net" (just exec the .bin file
with the /net option).  When asked, I would save in 
"/usr/local/office52" but the choice is up to you.  

Once installed, login as user and go to "/usr/local/office/programs"
and run (./soffice) the soffice program.  This will install about
1.8MB of "personal" files in your home directory.  Each user on
your system should do this to get his/her "personal" files.

To finally run the program just exec /home/<user>/office52/soffice"
