Go into /usr/local/Star_Office5.2/program and type "setup". There will be a check box you can mark named "deinstallation" which should enable you to uninstall it. Do this as Root!

Thanks alot, I really appreciate the help

P.S. If I want everyone to be able to use StarOffice is /usr/local a good place to install it?

Thanks Again!

My theory is, if I'm installing mnually (using a tarfile and make command), something that wasn't installed either via RPM or during initial install it goes into /usr/local and if I want everyone to be able to use it I just make sure it has 755 (-rwxr-xr-x) permissions. I think that's good because then I know what programs I can remove safely if I need to back them out.
