Your best bet is to get APT 4 RPM and use it (or something similiar,
like yum). Then you just move the opensoffice rpms to apt's cache
directory and then type:

apt-get update
apt-get install openoffice

The system will examine the dependancies and if there are no missing
dependancies then it will install the files. If there are missing
dependancies it will inform you of them and ask if you want to download
