OpenOffice 3.2.1 on Fedora 14

Hey guys, brand new to Linux. A friend of mine helped me wipe my laptop and recommended I install Fedora 14 as my new OS. Have to say, I am impressed with the performance of my computer thus far. I tried to install OpenOffice 3.2.1 today but I can't seem to find it any of the programs/run them. I downloaded the install file from the website and ran it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello rchess89 and welcome to LQ,

did you install OpenOffice from the Fedora-repositories?

You may open a terminal and execute the command
if it starts OpenOffice, your only missing the entries in the startmenue. If it does not start, pleas execute the command
whereis soffice
if it does not show a path to the programm, you did not correctly install it.

Please provide more information about the Windowmanager you're using.

Did you restart at least the X-windowsystem after installing OpenOffice?
