download quake 3 off of windoze kazaa or buy it, $20, then copy to a disc. then get the current linux q3apoint file off of the id software ftp site. install this software (command line: ./ or sh linuxq3apoint) or whatever the filename may be. Copy your pak0 pk3 file from the quake3 disk to /usr/local/games/quake3/baseq3
