Default How to install OpenOffice.Org 3.0.0 in Ubuntu 8.04

Hi Falko,

I have tried to follow your local instruction and this is as far as I got:
ernest@ernest-desktop:~$ cd /home/ernest/Desktop
ernest@ernest-desktop:~/Desktop$ ls -la
total 157424
drwxr-xr-x 3 ernest ernest 4096 2008-12-07 19:17 .

ernest@ernest-desktop:~/Desktop$
and another icon has appeared on my desktop which reads:
/home/ernest/Desktop/OOO300_m9_native_packed-1_en-US.9358
I regret that I am causing you a lot of inconvenience due to my ignorance of the workings of Ubuntu when it comes to installing software. I have been in touch with our local community college to see if they can put me on to someone who could perhaps give me some tuition and I have also sent for a book on Ubuntu 8.04.
I am determined not to be beaten and to learn how to operate this very good and interesting operating system.
With grateful thanks for your help todate,

Ernest.
