installing open office under sarge 64bit debian


got it to install but it wont launch and when I ran apt-get to download a paxkage it said the following

openoffice.org: Depends: openoffice.org-bin (> 1.1.2+1.1.3) but it is not installable
openoffice.org-debian-files: Depends: openoffice.org-bin (> 1.1.2+1.1.3) but it is not installable

i did the following command to install this mess
dpkg -i --force-architecture openoffice.org-bin_1.1.3-9_i386.deb openoffice.org_1.1.3-9_all.deb openoffice.org-debian-files_1.1.3-8+1_all.deb

as u can see one of them is for the i386 but sadly i have an athlon 64bit

results of dpkg
debian:/home/sc# dpkg -i --force-architecture openoffice.org-bin_1.1.3-9_i386.deb openoffice.org_1.1.3-9_all.deb
