What happens whne you try to open OpenOffice after downloading it from CNET? If you receive a message telling you that it doesn't come from the Mac App Store or an identified developer, this is caused by Gatekeeper > http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5290
In this case, you have two options:
1. Right-click the application and choose Open.
2. Open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General, and choose "Anywhere" under "Allow applications downloaded from"

Open Office is not an Apple product. You need to contact the developer's tech support at the OO website.

my mac pro does not allow openoffice to install after downloadedfrom cnet
OpenOffice hasn't been updated in almost a year. You might consider LibreOffice, which is being actively updated.

LibreOffice is the way to go... swithed and never looked back.
Same source code as OpenOffice but it works 10x better. They also have localization in many languages which is very nice, very well done.
