    Welcome to the forums, piotr!

    You should get your OpenOffice package from here, unless it's included on the Slackware CDs. The above package has been pre-configured for Slackware and should install easily by using pkgtool, or installpkg from the command line. Don't forget to su to root to install software under Slackware.

    Have fun with your new Slackware installation...
