        when you do a tar xfv so50_01.tar, you'll see it creates so50 directory and I
think there there is also a glibc2_inst directory under that with README's, also
there is a Office50_inst directory with README and setup and they are pretty
straightforward, with very little to do except click on a few NEXT>>> and wait.

        Pretty similar setup here, but I couldn't tell you about the rpm file, I didn't
know it existed.

        Whilst on the subject, I've been asking myself the same question as everything
works fine, but no support for PowerPoint support in StarOffice 5.0, which
applix says is supported in its latest 4.4.1, also on their site they have
released a number of fixes for stuff that didn't work properly, see for details.
