Dave, consider reading the manual it does provide more information then I can.
Using the network installation model, rather then dumping the entire program
into home, allows you to setup mutliple installations as in for each account
on your single system. Do you really see any valiue of installing the
application seperately for each account?
Star/Openoffice have been designed an a network centric application. The core
is installed where ever you want, consider LSB compliance when doing this,
and the "client" (2 mbs) can be installed in each account, regardless if that
account is local or in Toronto or someday on your palm or handled device.
