yum install openoffice

Do you have creatrepo installed? Try

yum list createrepo

to see if installed (which it probably isn't), and if not, install with

yum install createrepo

edit - good point Chris.

What distro, version, and arch are you running?

What was the specific error when you tried to use yum?

Edit; Opps you said Centos but not what version or arch.
