Do you know how to navigate through filesystem in console? If not, it's real easy, open up an Xterm/Konsole, it will automatically put you in the current user home directory, find the file you downloaded with ls command, if it is not there than use cd dir_name to change to a directory where you download your files, and use ls again, get the filename and issue chmod 755 filename it will make sure there is an executable bit set, now become a superuser with /bin/su command enter root password and issue
./name_of_ut2003_executable_file
It will install UT2003 on your system, it should place shortcuts in KDE/Gnome menus to run it, enjoy.
