    doom 3 has just been made available for linux :-)

    http://zerowing.idsoftware.com/linux/doom/

    since doom3 uses opengl instead of directx its possible to play doom with very little changes under linux. unfortuently no 5.1 surround sound :-(

    there is also no need to actually copy the pak00 files from the cds. i just linked symlinked them from the windows install and it works fine.

    I have no clue about linux, but doesn't this mean you'd get a better performance out of your system?

    Since Linux uses less resources than windows?

    (I'm fully aware I might have this completely wrong)

    comparing specs:
    GNU/Linux system,
    Pentium III, 1Ghz
    256Mb RAM

    English version of Microsoft® Windows® 2000/XP
    Pentium® IV 1.5 GHz or Athlon® XP 1500+ processor or higher
    384MB RAM

    the only problem is ati driver support is pretty shit at the minute.

    never been able to install linux.. most of the cds dont boot (EVEN with correct bios settings)... but the crappy ones do boot...such as Redhat.
