I think the natural thing for an installer of this kind would be to 
default to the most recently installed version ( on my XP system in 
C:\Documents and settings\username\Application Data\sversion.ini ). A 
power user will probably find a way to install the clipart library to 
other locations as needed...

Only problem is if the OpenOffice installers are putting the version 
information in different places for different versions... :(
