What they are saying, is put the new libopenal.so.0.0.7 in the place of 
the one that ut2004 uses "/usr/local/games/ut2004demo/System/openal.so" 
by default. I would recommend though backing up the old one first, 
possibly by moving it to openal.so.backup and then copying the new one 
to the dir, with openal.so as its name.
