You need to download the 104MB one.

Probably. Try wget or curl:

wget http://bf1942.lightcubed.com/dist/bf1942_lnxded-1.6-rc1.run


curl http://bf1942.lightcubed.com/dist/bf1942_lnxded-1.6-rc1.run

If you don't have either installed, Google for instructions on how to 
install them for your distrobution.

Yes. Download the file, chmod 755 it, and run it. It will ask what dir 
to extract to. See the full details here:
