CentOS4, insalling extensions....

Hi there

Sorry, I am new to these forums and Linux (and this maybe in the wrong place!).

My problem is this:

I have a dedicated server with CentOS4, I was wondering if extensions for RedHat were compatible?

I want to install open office headless and there seems to be no distribution specifically for CentOS4, maybe I am just stupid but isn't it based on RedHat and couldn't I install a build for RedHat on there?

Thanks for your time, and please feel free to move this post...

From my experience CentOS and RHEL packages are interchangeable.
Yet generally I get them from CentOS onto RedHat rather then the other way round.

# yum install openoffice

or download them from
for example


centos4, extensions, installing
