It has been a while since I went through this, so this is all from my 
(faulty) memory.  I think there is or was a readme or install file in 
the tarball that explains what you need to do.  Basically as root you 
need to run the setup script with the /net switch.  This sets up a 
multi-user installation in /usr/local. Then, as each user, run the 
setup script again, without the /net switch.  This installs a subset of 
the installation in ~/soffice52 with your personal work files and 

budr@twocups:~$ du -s /usr/local/office52/
259900  /usr/local/office52
budr@twocups:~$ du -s ~/office52/
5844    /home/budr/office52
