Backport for OO.org2 for Sarge

Hey Guys-
I'm running Sarge and I am trying to get OpenOffice.org2 from a backport? Any suggestions of where I might get it? I see that it's at but I can't figure out how to add source.

U can get it from debian Sid or dl the rpm linux package from web site and extract file in konsole or terminal with 'tar zxvf' then as root use alien -i *.rpm . U may find rt click on extracted file and chose open in terminal easier. Wait a few minutes until alien does its thing then 'cd desktop-integration' and finally dpkg -i *.deb to get OO2 in main menus for kde and gnome. Good luck.
