OpenOffice.org Multi-Volume Split Downloads

Overview
The multi-volume split version of OOo was created primarily for dial-up users who may have trouble downloading OOo because of its large size. Now, instead of downloading one large 110-140 MB file, users can download multiple 10 MB files that can be reassembled to create the official download.

Download
The multi-volume split version of OOo can be downloaded from the following mirrors:

ftp.rz.tu-bs.de/pub/mirror/OpenOffice.org__Split/ (Germany)
ftp.oooforum.org/pub/ (USA)

Directions for Linux
Assuming you have not renamed the files in the set, just run the included 'rebuild.sh' script:

$ chmod 700 rebuild.sh
$ ./rebuild.sh
If you have renamed the files in the download set, then run GNU tar using the following format:
$ tar -xMf filename1.tar -f filename2.tar -f filename3.tar
Once you've created the standard OOo download file from the smaller chunks, be sure to check its md5sum. The included file, md5sum.txt, contains the md5sum for your platform. You can also check the file against the md5sums published on the OpenOffice.org website.

Directions for Windows
Go to the directory where you downloaded all the files and execute (double click) the file with the .exe extension.

Once you've created the standard OOo download file from the smaller chunks, be sure to check its md5sum. The included file, md5sum.txt, contains the md5sum for your platform. You can also check the file against the md5sums published on the OpenOffice.org website.
