What Does The UT2004 Installer Do Behind The Fancy GUI Installer?


I'm about to reinstall my system, because I've been messing too much around

But I hate spending 10000000000000000000000 years installing Unreal Tournament 2003 and 2004. Is it possible to just backup the installed files and folders (/home/himedir/games/ut2004/) or does the installer add some variables to some system files whitch I need to note down to get it to work or does it just copy the files over from the CDs?

My ut2004 lives in /usr/local/games/ut2004, I have a backup of this directory on dvd-r. Deleting that directory and restoring it from dvd-r works perfectly, and its a lot faster than the installer.
