John, we've experimented with changing the Hertz value for the kernels
in an attempt to alter the work/sleep timing sequence the game engine
uses.   We originally did it for hlds, but I've also tried it for BF1942
also.   It used to be that _most_ default Linux installs set the rate at
HZ=100, and you could recompile the kernel with HZ=1000, or any other
number.   It's worked very well with the hlds engine, so I just did it
by default on all my gaming servers.   The side effect is more CPU
usage, but the game generates more frames.
