LibreOffice should not remove any OpenOffice rpm versions as it has a
different name. Here is an installation guide for Freedesktop, Mandriva,
RedHat and Suse that I posted earlier:

Why can I not have both? Oh well, back to Open Office fornow.....

Just wanted to make note of the following. If you plan on installing
the LibreOffice v. 3.3 beta on linux, here are some steps that could
help you do an easier install if you are not used to using too much of
the console and prompt.
Intallation (based on a KDE desktop Mandriva 2010.1)
1. download LibreOffice from http://www.documentfoundation.org to your
"downloads" folder into a folder called "LibreOffice"
2. open Konsole
3. do $su -
4. enter root password
5. do #dolphin
6. browse to the "LibreOffice" folder in the "downloads" folder
7. right-click on the LibreOffice file and choose extract archive here
8. once extracted double-click on folder "en-Us" and then "RPMS" and
9. in Dolphin do F3 (this will split screen your window)
10. click in the right window once and click on the "UP" arrow in the
main menu bar up-above in Dolphin
11. you will now have the left window "desktop-integration" and right
"RPMS" windows open
12. in the left window drag the
libreoffice3.3-mandriva-menus-3.3-9526.noarch.rpm file to the RPMS
window and choose "Copy" **
13. in Dolphin do F3 and use the "UP" arrow till you are back at the
level where you see the "licenses", "readme", "RPMS" folders
14. right-click on folder RPMS and choose Action-Open Konsole
15. Konsole wil now open with a #
16. in Konsole do #rpm -Uvih *rpm
17. wait till all the packages have installed
-- ** for step 12 -- Note that if you are on Freedesktop drag the
corresponding file instead; if you are on RedHat drag the corresponding
file instead; if you are on Suse drag corresponding file instead
You will now have the LibreOffice v. 3.3.0 Beta installed and in your
Mandriva menu. However, your menu items do not work. To setup your
Mandriva menu, right click on the "Mandriva" start button (taskbar
button with the star) and choose "Edit Menu". Find the LibreOffice icon
(in Office) and click on it once; the right-hand window of the editing
window will become active and choose "Command" -- click on the folder
icon and browse to the Opt/libreoffice3 etc. till you find the right
corresponding command file. Do the same for all of the other sets of the
LibreOffice icons in the start menu. My opinion, I just set the
LibreOffice icon and you don't really need the rest and this main window
will give you access to all other parts of the LibreOffice Suite.
Hope this helps those who wish to try the LibreOffice v.3.3. beta.
Remember, that this is a beta and may have some hiccups along the way.
The look and feel of the suite has still not been polished.
