Hello rchess89 and welcome to LQ,
did you install OpenOffice from the Fedora-repositories?
You may open a terminal and execute the command
if it starts OpenOffice, your only missing the entries in the startmenue. If it does not start, pleas execute the command
if it does not show a path to the programm, you did not correctly install it.
Please provide more information about the Windowmanager you're using.
Did you restart at least the X-windowsystem after installing OpenOffice?
