That's the whole hassle with linux stardartization, you see Mandrake packages contain mdk suffix in the package name and when you install a Mandrake package on Red Hat machine it would install fine if there is no deps problem, but if there is a dependency problem here starts fun. The same happens with ximian desktop (that's why I don't use it) it replaces a bunch of libs with ximian suffixes and when you try to update or install a package and you know you have all the libs intact it won't let you unless you get a replacement for all dependent packages with ximian suffix in them. Rediculous. So, I heard sun has shut down free downloads of star office 5.2 - solution is head to http://www.openoffice.org/
and grab open office 1.0.
