I'm in the process of buying a duplex to live in and rent out and I have no spreadsheet type software on my computer. I've heard quickbooks is good, would OpenOffice suffice? Is there anything else I should get?
I'm looking at SmartMove by Transunion for credit and BG checks and the Landlording Kit from Socrates for boilerplate.

I checked out Bookkeeping for Dummies, LLCs for Dummies and an LLC book from NOLO.
Met with my accountant today. He advised me to modify my LLC. Wish I'd had a chance to meet with him first but I can fix it or start a new one, they're so easy and cheap. He said that Excel would be fine. Bookkeeping for such a small company isn't so scary now that I'm refreshing my memory on the stuff I learned in school.
Looking at these books too, if anyone has any input.
