wow, what a distro to start with, you will learn a ton! Suse 8.2 is a really nice distro out of the box, but it was a beyotc* installing apps after wards. Anyway, you might want to try wineX instead of wine for a game like UT2003.

WineX? Why?

UT2003 to the best of my knowledge comes with it's own linux installer. It's found on the 3rd disk. Some people have reported problems though if you run it directly off the CD, so copy the installer to your home dir and try it from there.

welcome to the best place for linux newbies (id clasify myself as being 50% newbie...heh)

I managed to get the UT2003 demo working on my computer (RH9.0), but not the full thing. Oh well, I will buy ut2004 when it comes out and try again with that.

i've just heard of people having better luck with winex for that game, to be honest I don't really game on linux so I can't say for sure.

But UT2003 should run natively....In other words, its NOT a windows program.
