Wait until you are finished downloading. It will take a little bit time since it is a 170MB file.
Now go to the downloaded location. (example Downloads dir)



Step 3: Extract the downloaded package there or anywhere you like.

[root@server Downloads]# tar xvf OOo_3.3.0_Linux_x86_install-rpm-wJRE_ar.tar.gz

Step 4: Change the directory to the extracted location using cd.
