ipmasquerading works good for normal things like internet browser,
ftp, icq ... but unfortunately i dont know why its not enough for games.
and i want to play some games like diabolo2 or ulima online or heroes3
with other guys in the internet. as i found out in the ipmasq faqs
portforwarding and the patches LooseUDP and subs-patch-1.37 could help. so
this question is rather for the mulinux developers as for the list, but
maybe someone has experiences with that and can help me.

as i am not so used to linux i dont know what is really necessary to get
some things to run, so this is maybe a stupid question.

on my main pc i run suse6.2, but i think its not possible to compile the
packages under my suse and then run them on mulinux or? also when i
download a binary from the internet it doesnt run on mulinx. why?

on which linux-version do i have to compile or which packages, libs, do i
so i can execute the binaries under mulinux?

can i patch the kernel with one of the patches i mentioned above or do i
have to recompile him then?

do the newer version of mulinux still work with 4mb ram?

how can i update to the latest version?
