Fonts are a system wide issue - not just an OpenOffice.org issue, so there is no 'place for openoffice' as such.

Generally, all you need to do is the double click the font file in the File Browser and the font installer should be called to install them. You may then have to re-boot to see them in all applications that use them.

Can you try that out and report back if you are still having difficulties.
