Re: staroffice 5.2 freezes

I'm running StarOffice 5.1a, and it works well.  I installed
from a .rpm that was in a 'Linux-Mandrake 7.0 Deluxe' CD set.
I'm not a lawyer, but I'm pretty sure Sun doesn't allow 
redistribution without license (money), or I would publish
the rpm.  This is probably why I couldn't find any download
sites for rpms when I was writing a "StarOffice on OpenBSD"
HowTo :(.
I checked the Linux-Mandrake website and saw that they have 
StarOffice 5.2, presumably in rpm form, in their 8.0
Standard Edition package.
I know it kind of sucks to buy another OS, but ...
