You don't have to even log out and log back in... just run 'killall
gnome-panel' and the panel will reload with your pretty new OOo2

To make it the default editor, for both a .sxw file and a .doc file
right click, select Properties, then the Open With tab.  There should

select the radio button next to that option and it should use OOo2 as
