    9.04 on laptop-openoffice 3.1

    I wanted to upgrade to Open Office 3.1 on my ubuntu 9.04 install, I downloaded the file for OO 3.1, but how can I be sure to put all the links and the files in the proper directories? (example - I downloaded Firefox 3.5 and I have yet to figure out how to put the firefox icon on the application launcher I put on my top toolbar.)
    I have been searching google, but the more I read the more I am becoming confused. I don't want a slopped up install of open office, I would like to just overwrite the 3.0 install.
    Thanks!
