Upgrading Open Office

I'd like to upgrade to Open Office 2.0 beta release candidate, since it is a big jump from what I have (1.1.3). However, from what I've read, it's a typical beta with plenty of bugs. So, instead I want to upgrade to 1.1.4, unless someone can convince me otherwise. The current version for me came when I installed Mandrake 10.1. How would I go about doing that? Supposedly, I shouldn't install over my current installation, so how do I uninstall it? Or what should I do? Thanks in advance.

Using Mandrake 10.1, KDE 3.2.3, Kernel

You can download and install the beta version. It installs in a different location and will coexist with the current OOo.... I have it on my box now and can start either version... Features are okay, but it looks really bad on my box for some reason...
