Rep: Reputation: 15 wont run for UT 2004

Hey guys Im trying to install UT 2004 on my linux partition at home. I installed it at school just to see if it would work, and everything worked fine. When I got home I tried to install it on my home computer, and the first time through it locked my computer up. Now when I try and run the it starts spinning up the cdrom but doesnt do anything. I tried running it from the konsole and i get this error
[root@localhost cdrom2]# ./
bash: ./ /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
Can anyone help me out with what Im doing wrong. I play this game frequently and am tired of rebooting just to play it. If I can play this game in linux I'll be one step closer to my goal (deleating my Windows partition). Thanks in advance for all your help.

Papa Smurf

p.s. Im using Mandriva 2005 LE

Don't run like ./, but as sh instead, the permisson denied, means that the file does not have execute permisons (though it should)
