Unable to complete install on main user account

I've installed Opence Office 2.4 with no problem on my main user account "mike"

Now when i located the Open Offier icon in my Applications folder, i first get prompted to use Apple Fonts, i say Yes, then another Font question, I say yes to then I get this error message:

sh: /Users/mike/library/Logs/OpenOffice2.log:Permission denied

I've had issues installing software (Adobe CS3) on this user account (mike) so I logged in another admin account, to try to finish the Open Office install, I got the same font messages, then open office eventually opened up.

I logged back into mike to get the same permission denied problem.

I have no idea why I have issues with my main account, it is in fact an admin account, and it was the original account i created when setting up Leopard 10.5.2.

I have no problem using my other account as my main account, but i need to transfer all my documents and stuff over to the account, and i can't because i have no permission to mike's documents under another account.

very frustrating, but any ideas why im getting this permission denied error on my mike account?

Does your Library folder really start with a non capital 'l' ? That is at least unusual.
What happens if you just say 'no' to the second font question ?
