Being based on the DOOM 3 engine, you could almost expect Quake 4 (seen in Figure 13.4) to ship with a good deal of support for Linux. To get started, you must have the Windows version of the software because you need several files as well as the CD key to be able to play the game. First things first, though. Head on over to http://zerowing.idsoftware.com/linux/quake4/ to download the required Linux installer (quake4-linux-1.0*.run) by either direct FTP or the more bandwidth-friendly BitTorrent.
