having problems installing OpenOffice on client machine

I've downloaded OOo 1.1.2, gone through the install routine and set it up on my file server with ./setup -net. All of that seemed to go fine but when I try to set it up on my client machine using ./setup I get a dialog box with
Important program files were not found.  The installation set may be damaged.

Both machines are running Slackware 10.0 and everything else seems to be in good working order. Of course I reinstalled OOo, with the same results. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a fix or do I just need to try downloading the tar.gz file again?
