I tried just downloading the binaries from OOo's site, but I managed to
crash Konqueror about halfway through the download.  So, I'm now installing
Mozilla so that I can surf the web with fewer crashes and download OOo's
binaries.  I'll let you know how it goes.  (I'll probably start
re-downloading OOo using Lynx or something before I go to sleep, too)
