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.

to extract to. See the full details here:
