FC8: Using Sqlite3 in OpenOffice, with or without ODBC

This is related to the problem with Sqlite3 and php I posted earlier
today. I am working with Sqlite3 because I'd like to have single-file,
server-less databases which may be used both from php and from
OpenOffice.

The Php part is now solved, but I'm having problem to find applicable
documentation which explains how to connect to, and manage, an Sqlite
3 database with OpenOffice 2.3 on Fedora 8.

By "applicable" I mean that there are several resources online, but
they really look all outdated or not valid for some other reason with
OOo 2.x / FC. This page, for example:

http://grass.osgeo.org/wiki/Openoffice.org_with_SQL_Databases#SQLite_files_.28OpenOffice.org_2.x.29

says that I should add the driver libsqlite3odbc.so to
/etc/odbcinst.ini, but I haven't found any rpm which provides this
file.

What now? (please note, as I said in the php/sqlite post, that for
several reasons compiling from source now on this PC is not possible,
sorry).

TIA,
			Marco
