-<h2>Linux RPM-based Installation<a name="linux"></a></h2>
-<h3>Prerequisites</h3>
+<h2> Linux Installations<a name="linux"></a></h2>
+The following preinstallation steps are recommended for Linux distributions. These should
be taken to assure that you
+have a clean install of Apache OpenOffice due to internal considerations and/or the installation
of LibreOffice, if it
+exists, on your system.
+
+<ol>
+<li> Check to see if LibreOffice has re-routed the OpenOffice binary to itself instead.<br>
+ Type <code>"whereis soffice"</code> from a console.</br>
+ <br>If this is symlinked to libreoffice, remove the symlink. (see your favorite reference
for how to do this)</br>
+ <br>This will NOT remove LibreOffice, this will only disallow LibreOffice to redirect
the normal OpenOffice binary --
+ typically <code>/usr/bin/soffice</code> -- to libreoffice instead.</br></li>
+ <li>Remove your old version of OpenOffice completely.<br>
+ The safest way to do this for most users is to use a GUI package manager to search for OpenOffice
and remove
+ all packages.</br></li>
+</ol>
