Hi Mike,

I assume you have installed Fedora 15.
Since Fedora 15, Fedora has drop the OpenOffice suite in favor of
LibreOffice (which is a fork of OpenOffice born after the acquisition
of OpenOffice by Oracle).
You can find the LibreOffice suite under the "Office" menu. If not,
try to search with the graphical software installer of even with yum.

$ sudo yum install libreoffice-writer
