hey guys I tried installing Open Office into my macbook and got the message that I needed x11. So I downloaded that and tried to install it but then it told me that I already had a newer version of it or whatnot and couldn't install it. So when I went back to trying to install Open Office again, it still said I needed to instal X11... So what should I do?

Oh man I'm just wasting peoples time here. I'm searching.. sorry guys

With Tiger 10.4 that download will not work. You have to use the Install DVD that came with your Mac. It's under Optional Installs. Just check X11 and it will install it.

This will help.

friggin x11

Or you might try NeoOffice - which I think is a better version of OO.
