How do I install Templates in Open Office 2.0?

Have Linspire 5.0.49 and Open Office installed. I noticed on OO's website a complete set of templates for download. Downloaded the tar,but cannot get them to install,mainly cos I'm new to Linux and am probably doing something wrong!
I am running as root and when I download the tar it shows up in ARK. I know that this means it's zipped(please say if I'm wrong!!) So I ran "tar xzfv all_templates.tar.gz" Then the run command I don't know what to do now! The site said install to " directory"
Any help would be much appreciated,I had a search in Linspires CNR so I could do it the easy way but no template package.
A step by step guide would be great if anyone has the time....Thanks

If you didn't get any errors, then it should have made a folder called all_templates. You may need to refresh Konqueror or just close/re-open Konqueror to see the new folder.

The location of openoffice maybe different on your system but, on my FC5 box, I just moved the entire all_templates folder over to

Now, I can access them in OO by going to
New / Templates and Documents - all_templates
