Whenever you ask a question please tell us your distr, version, and arch (Centos5.5 64bit). Without that information no one can give you very good answers.

You MIGHT try "yum install openoffice".

Installing an rpm package, that you downloaded :
# yum localinstall --nogpgcheck <package>.rpm
( Will work with one package at a time.)

Chain install : # rpm -Uvh <package> <package> <package> <package>
( Or # rpm -Uvh OOo* ).

Using yum to download and install :

1) Finding the correct package name :
# 'yum search <name>' ( Or part of name.)

2) # yum install <package>

..

this is your problem right here
in the error message you posted

red hat enterprise linux IS NOT FREE !
- yes it can be for a VERY limited use -- to see if it runs on your computer
BUT to install software YOU NEED TO BUY a license
to get any software security updates or bug fixes -YOU NEED TO BUY a license
for any support from red hat -- YOU NEED TO BUY a license
to get the software to build programs from source - YOU NEED TO BUY a license
if you ARE NOT going to pay for red hat then DO NOT USE IT !

install the FREE community supported version of RHEL -- CentOS 5.5

also -- others correct me if i am wrong --
i do not think that the current OO 3.2.1 runs on rhel5 or CentOS 5.5
i think the version is 3.1 ?

but i think it is in the "RPMForge" repo
install cent
install RPMForge repo
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories
then "yum install openoffice "

No Redhat account ? Expect a limited functionality. No "yum package install".
Don't want to pay : Do not use Redhat EL 5. Please use a free version instead.

The free identical versions are 1) CentOS 5.5 http://www.centos.org/
2) Scientific Linux SL55 https://www.scientificlinux.org/
