Version of OOo supported on RedHat Enterprise Server v.5.3?


New member - first posting...

My company builds and sell specialized medical practice management software; the servers we use have always run Linux. Recently we moved from our own hybrid Linux version to RedHat Enterprise servers, v 5.3. All of our document creation in the system uses OpenOoffice.org (we have used v 1.1.5 - primarily Writer) for document creation, merges and printing. An example would be the generation of a referral letter for a patient to a primary care physician.

My question is: does RedHat Ent. v5.3 support OOo 's newer versions, especially the most recent v 3.1?

If not what is the most recent version of OOo we could use?

I am a trainer, not an engineer and have been asked to post this query by our chief programmer. Hope I'm in the right place and have supplied appropriate and sufficient info.

Many thanks,
David

Keep in mind though that Red hat 5.3 comes by default with OpenOffice.org 2.3
I don't know however how things are with Red Hat when trying to get packages which aren't in default install with a support contract.
