ray_miami, maybe you installed Base without the other components of OpenOffice.org because MS Office is also installed and you didn't want OO.o to mess with MS Office. Well, OO.o can coincide peacefully with MS Office on the same computer. One word of caution, however, is when you install OO.o, make sure you don't associate MS Office files with OO.o programs (if that is how you want your computer to run). During the install process of freedom- and choice-providing OO.o you are provided with this option.
