I havent done anything, its a total clean install

1. installed the linux server
2. changed ServerSettings.con to internet server + changed name + 
contentcheck off
3. installed DC 0.35 client on a win2k machine (without BF on),
4. zipped the "mods" dir
5. and uploaded it to the linux server where i unzipped it
6. start the game with "./bf1942_lnxded +statusMonitor 1 +game DesertCombat"

(i've also changed a couple of FF and kickback settings, not that it should 
matter. Battle of 73 Easting doesnt work)

the server is redhat 7.3, with all availible updates applied

im going to include my startup files, cause they rock

--------begin "dc"--------------------
cd /home/bf/bin
screen -a -m -d -S dc ./rundc
---------end "bf"---------------------

--------begin "rundc"-------------
cd /home/bf/dc1942
while : ; do
         start=`date '+%d%H%M%S'`
         echo "bf started at $start" >>bf.log
./bf1942_lnxded +statusMonitor 1 +game DesertCombat
date >>crash.log
         stop=`date '+%d%H%M%S'`
         t=`expr $stop - $start`
         if test 0 -le $t -a $t -lt 20 ; then
                 failcount=`expr $failcount + 1`
         if test $failcount -gt 5 ; then
                 exit 1
         sleep 3
--------end "rundc"--------------

hope you can use it
