Purchase?!?  http://linuxquake.telefragged.com

        If you want to get the advanced missions and things like that,
you'll need the CD's, but Quake II is a freebie!

Another question:  I can get Q2 to run under X Windows, but I can't get it to
run from the console in full-screen mode, which is what I'd really like to
do.  I'm trying to install SVGAlib 1.2.13 under S.u.S.E. 5.1, but everytime I
try to do a "make install", I get the following set of errors:

/bin/sh: -c: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file
make: *** [uninstall] Error 2

If someone knows where I might find the binaries for the latest version of
SVGAlib (I've looked; no dice), I'd greatly appreciate it.  Or if I'm barking
up the wrong tree on this one, please let me know that, as well.

I'm comparatively new to Linux, so please, be merciful. :)  And explicit.
Merciful and explicit.

If you are a beginner, read carefully 0-INSTALL and 0-README files.
You must be root to run "make install", and don't forget to edit

Binary version can be found on redhat and debian distributions.
I don't know how you can istall them with SUSE.

To run on fullscreen, quake2 must be setuid root
(when you are root, type:"chown root quake2" and "chmod u+s quake2")
or be runned as root.
