You probably want to use openoffice it has everything you would need.

Look at the man page for yum for information on how to install software.

you are using rhel5.4 and NOT 5.5 or 5.6
SO YOU ARE paying for the EXTENDED license and CAN NOT - for some reason-- upgrade to 5.5 ( or 5.6)

seeing as you are paying red hat a very large sum of cash for staying with 5.4

ask your paid for support


or install CentOS 5.5
the free version of red hat .
