OpenOffice on Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal

Forums: 

I'm not very good with linux yet, however I like OpenOffice and don't want libre office. I have tried countless times to install it but I can't, mostly due to lack of knowledge I believe. Here is what I do:

I go to OpenOffice.org

Download the 64 bit Debian file

extract and open folder

See a bunch of different files and accomplish nothing.

What is the step I am missing? I have been able to install other programs by going to the terminal, typing in sudo su to become root then dragging and dropping the file I am trying to install into the terminal window.

Please help, I am running Ubuntu 11.04 Desktop

Let me know if you need more information.
