More openoffice.org-* packages should be available. Which CD is this,
the first CD of the standard Etch 21 CD set?

"apt-get install openoffice.org" should have worked. I think we need to
have a quick look at your apt configuration. Please post the contents
of the file /etc/apt/sources.list from your system.
