Computer Illiterate users/newbies.

I think it would be a good idea to supply a .package file for those players who are illterate or newbies in Linux. It would greatly help those who can't compile on Linux.

I dont think so - because theres already a windows package(illiterate ppl would surely use windows) and for linux newbies there are enough sources to get the game; btw Ubuntu 7.10, Debian Sid, Fedora Core have already packages for their systems available.

And...if youre starting with linux setting up the game from source would be a good expierence anyways - and i bet you second me, its not hard todo :)

For those who cant doit id suggest to get rich with the Microsoft Hit Wizard:

I have TMW running on both OpenSUSE and Ubuntu, of course compiled by source and I'm a complete linux noob.
