Spanish Speel Checker

I need this really, really fast. How do you install a spanish spell checker, like in Microsoft Word? ispell-es? I'm running Gentoo.

I've set the language to spanish but correct words are highleted red! And it likes to reset itself to english.

Did you use the wizard to install dictionaries in openoffice?

After you installed you will need to adjust two preferences in openoffice.

1: default language to use with text documents
2: language/spell check (just like you set it up before, but it resets because you didnt perform the 1st step).

Thats it

Well I don't have openoffice. I wish, cause I like it (in other distros), but it's masked in gentoo and doesn't compile. Abiword has the language option and spellcheck but, like I said, it a) doesn't work and b) always resets itself to english.

Sense I know openoffice does have spanish I'll try installing it again. Maybe get the soruce from the website or something.
