Thanks, but this doesn't work either! Everything appeasr to install
OK, when I try to run the setup fails: firstly it complained that it
couldn't find setup - and indeed it wasn't there, but setup.bin
was. So I hardlinked setup to setup.bin, ditto the other.bin files in
the directory.

Now when I try it it says that it can't find libcomphelp2.so - which
also exists.

I'm starting to tear my hair out over this: I *must* have OO running
on my new machine before I can hand the old one over to my wife as
