How to install Open Office on Fedora 23 workstation 32bit

I just recently upgraded for Fedora 18 to Fedora 23 workstation. (I never really used f18 that much, didn't have time to experiment. Now that I have the time I want to dive in and learn.)

I have a 32bit system that I am running the workstation on. I've downloaded OpenOffice rpms and unpacked it. I used the command line to install the packages, with this command | rpm -Uvih *rpm |. I should state that I am using the terminal through the GUI and I expected to see the app in my application menu but I did not. I searched the hard drive and found the OpenOffice files in my OPT directory. When I tried to run any of the apps from that directory Libre Office started instead of OpenOffice.

What did I do wrong?

Is there a GUI installation? If so, how do you start it?

Thanks for your help with this. Please be kind, I am still learning how all of this works.
