I have three computers here that I want to be able to play Unreal
Tournament on, two MS & a Debian machine. I have two copies of UT.
Will I need to get a third so I can install & play on the Debian machine?

Legally: yes. Technically: no. The Linux version contains no cd check,
and neither do the latest windows versions.

No problem. I found a used copy at a local game store. The reason I
was asking, I goofed and installed UT from the same CD set the other day
and on my internal server, one of the players had issues. The bots were
sliding and would not fall when shot. After installing from a different
set, things worked fine.

This was (is) an issue with the high detail textures. The behavior that
the player experienced is caused by the server running the normal textures
and the client running the HD textures (and maybe vice versa). There is a
fix available, but I could never get it to work.

How about me coping all of the high-def textures to the server? I did
this on my main server, to no ill effects that I know of.

I'm pretty sure that you can install the HD textures to the server and
they will work properly. I can't verify this as I never really went to the
trouble to set them up. Just seemed a lot of bother for not very much
visual improvement (during play, they looked great while just walking
around the map). Good luck with whatever you decide.

Known problem - in that version he installed "compressed textures".
Having that installed can cause issues with some servers on some
versions of ut.
