I've got a copy of the Linux Magazine disk dated December 2001.  It 
includes Open Office, and Pan.  Can I install these programmes under 
FreeBSD ver 4.3.  If yes, how?
I assume that the files I need are in tar.gz format.  FreeBSD will not let 
me install them.  I keep getting told that the files are in read only 
format.  Is it normal to have to re-set the permissions before installing 
software in this way, or is the system just telling me that the programmes 
are not suitable for use with this version of FreeBSD
