Patching/autoupdating will be broken, but you can:
run linux_installer.sh --keep
That should leave a copy somewhere (your $TMPDIR ? I can't remember
right now...) ...
Go into the directory it leaves behind (/tmp/ut2003_* or something).
In that directory is a tarball: ut2003lnxbins.tar
tar -xf /where/that/tarball/is/ut2003lnxbins.tar
Play from there.
The win32 default.ini uses the D3DDrv and WinDrv by default, which means
the game will refuse to load (since those interfaces aren't available on
Linux). It will write a UT2003.ini file with those values to your
homedir ($HOME/.ut2003/System/UT2003.ini). Just go in there and change
them to use OpenGLDrv and SDLDrv (you'll see this in the .INI it writes
out), and the game should load.
This is _totally_ untested, and a little vague, since I don't have the
info in front of me. I don't recommend doing this (and I don't want to
hear bug reports if something doesn't work after you do this), but it
SHOULD be possible with a little effort.
