i finally figured out how to install stinkin' X11 with Tiger. there are 2 options:

1. if you have the Tiger DVD, it's on that -- Apple claims it's easy to find. i don't know; i don't have that disk.

2. if, like me, you have the Mac OS X install disks (mine came with my new iBook), you need to install it directly from Disk 1. do not view as icons, the default view; the installer is easier to find if you switch to columns view. navigate to System > Installation > Packages > X11user.pkg. install as per usual.

you will now find X11 in Applications > Utilities. launching OpenOffice opens X11 and then opens OO. bliss.

hope this helps.

OO launches X11 for you, so you just have to wait until both are open. seems to take about 20 seconds, slower than M$ but worth every second.
