Sure wish it would install on the 2.6.X kernels... someone suggested 
installing it in text mode... same results. Installation aborted. 2.6.X 
kernels will be replacing the old slow 2. 4.x in most distros sooner than 
most would expect. It ran great on the former 2.4.X on my box but I'm not 
about to downgrade this 2.6.X   kernel for the sake of any game and I imagine 
many will feel the same. I wonder if the 2.6.x  problem will be fixed by the 
time the commercial release? I hope so, great game! If not, there may be a 
lot of Linux UT 2004 boxes on the shelves gathering dust. 


BTW, kudos to the great work on the 2.4.x 'version'.
