[ut2004] UT2004 on AMD64... no go

Running fine here with 2.6.12 and nvidia 7676 driver, on an opteron 248
with fx5600.

If you copy over the 3355 patch, make sure to mv the ut2004-amd64 binary
in the System directory to just ut2004-bin.(however this should not
effect the game running... just it running as amd64)

What distro? Debian I take it. My advise is not to use debians amd64
it's a bit kak. Use Suse or Gentoo. Gentoo is really stellar on amd64
and doesn't take very long to build up.
