Personally I would just uninstall the old version then install the new one. Depending on your setup you may need to update shortcuts etc.

If you already have Open Office installed by using Red Hat's RPM (Red Hat Package Manager), then you can either uninstall the existing package(s) or you can use the -U rpm option to upgrade the software.

Being one to reuse both software and forum comments, I found these suggestions online at computing.net:

Enter this at a command prompt to uninstall openoffice:

# rpm -e openoffice

To install the new version:

# rpm -i openoffice-1.1.i386.rpm

(or whatever the filename is)

There may be other rpm files that need to be updated, such as "openoffice-libs" and "openoffice-i18n".

Instead of uninstalling, then installing, you may want to use the upgrade option of RPM, such as:

# rpm -Uvh openoffice-1.1.i386.rpm

(again, use the correct filename)

It may be easier to use a GUItool to install/uninstall/upgrade, such as "gnorpm" (enter that at a terminal in the GUI).
