you get an error that says "Turkey Day..." ?

instead of navigating through the menu, could you try loading up
quake2, bringing up the console (default key: tilde), and using 'map
base1'. Does that crash as well?
What exactly is the error message you are receiving?

I'm not sure. We'll need more information about the error message.
You might want to try the 0.14 RPM that is posted on that same webpage.
It sounded like the 0.15 one was untested. Of course, my personal
recommendation is to always use the source...

Thats okay, don't worry about it.
