+1) Installation

+On Windows, the installer should take care of everything. To change the
+resolution, you need to use a command line option, see next section. To
+install on Linux, do the following (from the directory this file is in):
+
+./configure
+make
+cp src/warzone data
+
+and then to run the game:
+
+cd data
+./warzone
+
+If the configure/make steps above fail and you have all required libraries
+installed, run "./autogen.sh" and then try again. If it still doesn't work, you
+can try our other build system:
+
+make -f Makefile.raw
+cp src/warzone data
+
+If it still doesn't work, contact us.
+
+After that, you only need the "data" directory. You can move that around as you
+wish, for example:
+
+mv data ~/warzone
+
+To play the game, you have to change to this directory first, so after doing
