The package to install is openoffice.org.  You could find that with something 
like 'apt-cache search openoffice'.

You cannot install individual components in OOo 1.1.  For version 2 (due out 
in March), upstream do support individual packages and the Debian packages 
will be split too, but I'm afraid the -core package is far larger than the 
components and there will not be big savings.  See the package sizes here:
