Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have just installed the new nvidia drivers v.6111 and am now getting an error from ut2004 saying my cd key is invalid or currently in use. It also says my profile did not come from my machine. This is not the case. Any idea what's happened or what I can do next?
That error message *probably* means that someone is using the same CD key as you. This is either because:
1) Someone stole your CD key, either because you were using Windows and they scanned your registry or because you told the CD key to someone
2) You're using a downloaded CD key in which case BUY THE FRIGGING GAME!!
On the other hand, I have heard stories that UT2004 sometimes spits out that error when there is a different problem with the game. Make sure the game is updated to the latest version. You might also need to delete the .ut2004 directory in your home directory, because some of your .ini files might be corrupted.
Well, um *NO ON BOTH COUNTS* Installed copy bought at Target in SuSE 9.1
Atari has suggested reinstalling.
All this happened after upgrading the nvidia drivers. It had worked fine up to that point. Even after reinstalling the existing drivers twice, once to ensure new card would work, and again when kernel updated.
I suppose you could try reinstalling. First, though, I would try deleting ~/.ut2004. Also make sure the game is fully up to date. You might even want to downgrade your video drivers. Unless you have a problem with the old drivers, there isn't really a need to upgrade. I am using build 6106 atm and it works fine.
ps: sorry to cast doubt on the legality of your game, but that is probably the most common reason for that error, what with all the warez monkeys out there.
Not a problem. I've got to re-install the game anyway as I've installed Debian in place of SuSE. First trick was just to get the nvidia drivers installed. Now that I've done it, I can start putting the fun stuff back.
