So, has anyone else done this?

I have had multiple copies of OpenOffice or
StarOffice. No problem.

I have a copy of the OO beta. I am on SuSE 9.1. I want
to have both the old version and the beta running
concurrently on my system so that I can fall back on
the old one if the new one doesn't work properly. Can
someone tell me how to do this?

If I do
'rpm -Uvih *rpm' with the beta, I guess I will lose
the old version. Right?

I don't recall using RPM to install. I've usually used the tarball, which creates a new directory.
