I think Stephen managed to extract the .tar.gz but was confused by the 
fact that there is not one RPM, but many; you must simply install them 
all together (not one by one), something like (as root, in a terminal)

rpm -ivh *.rpm

and then, if you want to have OpenOffice in the system menus, cd into 
the desktop integration directory and install the appropriate RPM (the 
"freedesktop" one should work). Changes will be visible when you refresh 
menus, for example when you restart your computer.
