Yup, both 'soffice' and 'setup' give me the same error.

Nope, not a path thing.  I explicitly call the program,

Actually, Slackware's setup program will run!!!  :-)

That's FFS (Fat Finger Symdrome).  I mean't to say "Can't".  I didn't feel like 
typing the whole folder, but it gives me the full path to where it expects the 
setup program to be, "/fat-d/linux/OpenOffice.org641/program/setup.ins"  Sorry. 
 I was just being lazy!
