AFAIR, if you run "soffice" as a regular user it will so the setup
thing (and then exit so you must run soffice again)

On my network install I symlinked /usr/local/Office5.2/program/soffice
to /usr/local/bin/soffice, this works fine and is much simple.  In
fact I didn't realize I had a ~/office52/soffice, untill you pointed
that out.

:You may need to log in as root, startx, then run the main SO
:installation before running the user installation.

You don't need to be root, using "sudo" is fine.  If you don't know
what sudo is, install it and read the man page then ask here, it's
*very* useful.

:Hope this helps. If you have any questions, I hope I can answer them.

Wow, you really went the extra mile on this one, much respect.
