OS 10.4 - Installing X11 on my eMac OS X 10.4

I want to install OpenOffice on my eMac OS X 10.4, but when I try it indicates that I lack X11, which seemingly helps OpenOffice to run properly. Does anyone have any experience with this and will run into problems? By the way, I'm running Classic in the background as well (still working with an older Quark).

Running Classic won't affect X11.
X11 can be installed using your Tiger Install discs if you so desire.
You might want to look into NeoOffice as it runs without the need for X11, but has the exact same features as OpenOffice.
