- Get rid of OpenOffice 2.4: "apt-get remove openoffice.org*".
- Download deb .tar.gz from www.OpenOffice.org (choose a mirror closeby).
- There is a directory with a lot of debs, just type "sudo dpkg -i *.deb".
- Do also for the "destop integration" subdirectory.
(You can search for better directions, they are easy to find when
looking for "openoffice 3.0 hardy").
I worked for me, flawlessly on Hardy x86.
p.s. I did have issues where 2.4 lost the bullets when opening a
presentation edited with 3.0. Furthermore I encountered some bugs while
editing a presentation and got it to crash at several occasions though.
You should test your deployment before going ahead with it, especially
on the compatibility front.
