- Get rid of OpenOffice 2.4: "apt-get remove*".
- Download deb .tar.gz from (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.
