Enterprise 3.0+OpenOffice.org3=No transformations...

Platform/Supporting Apps: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2, MySQL 5.0.45, JDK 1.6.0 Update 7, OpenOffice.org 3, Tomcat 6.0.18 *came with Alfresco Enterprise 3.0 installer*

Alfresco Version: Alfresco Enterprise 3.0 (from AlfrescoEnterprise-3.0.0-Linux-x86-Install.bin) *TRIAL*

Background:
I am developing a prototype/proof-of-concept for my customers. I was previously using a trial of Alfresco Enterprise 2.2.0 for this purpose. It is important to note that with this prototype, I was not using transformations (thus, OpenOffice was never tied to Alfresco properly). However, I have since determined that I need to demonstrate this capability in my prototype due to customer usefulness.

Issue:
I have OpenOffice.org 3 installed and working properly (can bring it up using 'soffice' command). However, when I ran through the AlfrescoEnterprise-3.0.0-Linux-x86-Install.bin installer, no matter where I pointed Alfresco to for the OpenOffice program, it could not 'find' it. As such, I am unable to use the transformation feature, which I need to demonstrate.

After completing the installation, I modified several files to attempt to force Alfresco Enterprise 3.0 to know where OpenOffice.org 3 is. I modified these files by placing the appropriate path (/opt/openoffice.org3) as necessary. Here is a list of the files I've modified:
    /opt/alfresco/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/bootstrap/openoffice-startup-context.xml
    /opt/alfresco/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/remote-openoffice-context.xml.sample
    /opt/alfresco/install_extension/openoffice-startup-context.xml.install
The installation directory for OpenOffice.org3 is as follows:
/opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice

For reference, here are some commands that may provide more information:
[root@someserver ~]# whereis soffice
soffice: /usr/bin/soffice
[root@someserver ~]# which soffice
/usr/bin/soffice

I would greatly appreciate any help!
