quake / quakeforge

I downloaded quake2 and quakeforge files using URPMI but can't seem to get it working. Any ideas?

I get the following error

[paul@localhost games]$ quake2
Quake 2 -- Version 3.21+rCVS
using /home/paul/.quake2/baseq2/ for writing
couldn't exec default.cfg
couldn't exec config.cfg
basedir is write protected.
Console initialized.

------- sound initialization -------
sound sampling rate: 11025
------- Loading -------
No joysticks found
recursive shutdown
Error: Couldn't load pics/colormap.pcx

It can't find your Quake 2 directory/data. Make the directory and files accessible to it by changing the permissions and making sure the program knows where to look.
