Okay, but according to my old Star Office 5.1 instructions (which I at one 
time wanted to destroy but never got around to) there are three different 
types of installation:

1.  Single User Installation

2.  Network Installation

3.  User Installation

On my system I have a personal account and a business account.  If you have 
more than one account you do #2 followed by #3.  So maybe we should do a FAQ 
like Bill says, and lay out the different options.  

I don't know what it would have been like had I (read "Rod Roark" here) 
installed Open Office from the Mandrake CD's.  But since we're talking about 
passing out CD's that are not part of a Linux distro, maybe we should write 
something up about the three options.

In my case I did #1 first.  And then I realized that that was not the type of 
installation I wanted.  So I removed Open Office and did the other install.
