Angry thesaurus

Can anybody PLEASE tell me how to activate the thesaurus in open office 1.1 in Mandrake 9.2. I have been trying for hours but with no success. I have tried using the activation boxes located under the Tools/options area. I have tried the download utility from the open office website but nothing is working. Why in the name of Jesus doesn't it start by default. Why does this crap have to be so complicated.

As they describe in the OOo Help: Choose Tools - Options - Language Settings - Writing Aids, in the Available language modules list, select one of the language modules and then click Edit. That final step is critical but once you do it, you should be good to go -- J.W.
