Ok, what I did was....

Installed Debian stable into a vmware virtual machine, installed the game as
normal (and updated it) then nfs mounted /usr/local/games/ut2003 onto the 
local machine and copied everything across into /usr/local/games/ut2003 I also
then copied across the .loki from the virtual machine and everything appears
(so far) to be working great :) I even think the 2 bonus pack installed ok
(despite giving an odd error message at the end of the install).

Of course now i have a new problem in that the sound doesn't work, It is 
very quiet and appears to have crackles in it but I can't really tell. 

I am of course running Alsa 0.9.6, on a 2.4.22 series kernel, I havn't had time
to check *everything* yet, but it doesn't appear to be anything obvious like
having the mixer volume turned down :)
