from debian packaging:

p@satan% cd /usr/share/doc/openoffice.org
p@satan% ls
changelog.Debian.gz  README.Debian.gz  README.html      TODO
copyright            README.gz         README.japanese

but i didn't need instructions at all.   if you install via rpm or deb,
i think it's all taken care for you.  no wierd /net options to use.
