Installing OpenOffice.org

 <  Day Day Up  >  

For most users, installing OpenOffice.org takes little more than an Internet connection and some time (and more than some time if you don't have a high-speed broadband connection such as DSL or a cable modem). Basically, one needs only to go to the OpenOffice.org Web site, download OpenOffice.org, and install it onto a computer. Users will be creating Impress presentations and Draw drawings soon after that.

As the owner of this book, you don't need to download OpenOffice.org because it's included with this book's CD-ROM!


To download OpenOffice.org, you only need to surf to the OpenOffice.org Web site. One of the first and most prominent links on the page is the Download link. To download OpenOffice.org, you click this Download link to request OpenOffice.org.

Once the download completes, the user needs only click the Open button on the Download complete dialog box, and OpenOffice.org begins its installation. Even though you don't have to download OpenOffice.org, you'll need to remember where you read these instructions so when an updated version is released, you'll know where to get it. You download and install new versions the same way as you would download and install the very first installation.

Once a user tells OpenOffice.org what the target computer system is, the download process begins.
