yea, its the very same cd theres a script on loki's website, just download that, open a console, mount your UT cd, cd to the directory the script is in, run the script, and installs UT

You can install Quake3 Arena the same way as UT/UT2003.

You can also get quake 1, and 2 working if you have the windows CD, and return to castle wolfenstein as well. Just make sure your 3d card is configuresd correctly for hardware acceleration or else all these 3D games will run S L O W..
