I have installed openoffice 2.1. I have a couple of questions. When installing something in linux with RPM, how do you know what directory it will be installed in? After doing a search, I found a /opt/openoffice.org2.1 directory. It has a lot of files in it. Which file should I use to open writer, calc, etc... Also, how do I open these programs? Thanks.

find /opt/openoffice.org2.1 -name swriter -printLooking for a distro? Look here.
