You should just be able to open up regedit and export hklm:software:unreal technologies.
I am fairly sure those are the only unread keys.
As to the original parent, I would recommend installing ut2004 to a fat32 partition (windows/linux) from windows though, (you will have a much easier time not manually sorting through the convoluted windows install process).  Then on linux make an rc script (check your distro for details, they all use different schemes) to swap out the ut2004 ini and binary files for the linux ones.  Then on the end of your shutdown script, add a few lines to put back the windows files.  You could do something similar from windows if you would prefer, but i am not familier with how to add stuff to be inited (wow a new verb).
