I tried installing the openoffice .debs directly from
http://people.debian.org/~nidd/debian, but had no luck, so I tried your
source instead and got:

[kyoder@pc95 nobak]$ sudo apt-get install openoffice
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package openoffice has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and
never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents
of sources.list
E: Package openoffice has no installation candidate

Any ideas how to fix this?
