May you have much good fortune! On my experience, you'll need it.
It might depend on the system, but I have found that KWord crashes every
time you use "Save As" and KSpread won't save AT ALL.
Interestingly, Knoppix - which is a pretty comprehensive stand-alone
Debian Linux system - ships with Open Office, but without KOffice, even
though it uses KDE as its GUI.
OO just WORKS without any hassles I know of.
