you can. At home i have i have /usr/local/Office51 which must be about 100MB
or so. And then each user has their own Office51/ in their homedir which is
2.5MB after initial install.
1. as staroffice admin user, run it's install script with arg /net.
This will ask you for license keys and where to install. Make sure path to
system Office51/bin is available to users.
2. Each user then just has to run the SO install script, and supply their
own license key. This creates their personnel Office51 directory.
Things like templates/gallery/examples are symbolically linked, and take no
space, unless the user modifies them.
SO has had this feature since at least SO3, when i started using it.
