LibraOffice 3.3


I'm just starting out with Fedora 14, and trying to install LibraOffice 3.3 from a cd from Linux format.
Extracted the RPM file into my Downloads folder.
using 'yum install *.rpm' from su - it all seems to progress OK until getting a 'not signed' error.
Tried 'yum --skip-broken install *.rpm'
- to get around this problem,
but still got error messages.
So then used 'yum --nogpgcheck --skip-broken install *.rpm' - and all seemed to go OK and got a successful message, but have got nothing in the application menu.
Can you tell me how to get a shortcut in order to open the Office programs?

Assuming you're using Gnome, alacarte is your friend.
