You can download OOo_2.0.0_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz here:
Please do not bump your own threads unless you have not recieved a reply in a 24 hour period. This violates the LQ rules that you agreed to when you signed up.
You need to uninstall any old versions of OpenOffice.org that you have, untar the OOo 2.0 packages and install the rpms as root. If you don't know exactly what to do then post back with the exact path where you saved the OOo 2 package.
[michael@localhost ~]$ su
[root@localhost michael]# cd /home/michael/Documents/OpenOffice/RPMS
bash: cd: /home/michael/Documents/OpenOffice/RPMS: No such file or directory
[root@localhost michael]# rpm -Uvh *.rpm desktop-integration/*mandriva*
error: File not found by glob: *.rpm
error: File not found by glob: desktop-integration/*mandriva*
So where exactly is the OOo directory because that error means the directory does not exist. When you downloaded the tar.gz file and extracted it, you should have ended up with a directory called OOO680_m3_native_packed-2_en-US.8968 is that the one you renamed to OpenOffice?

It would have been better to uninstall the old one first like I said in my first post. Anyway start the Mandrake Control Center -> Software -> Management -> Remove Software and search for openoffice, remove all openoffice.org 1.x packages and leave those for 2.x.
