    Grab UT2003 from here, and NWN from here.

    Edit: Installation instructions for NWN are on the site I linked. For UT2003, you might have to set up your web browser to download bin files rather than try to open them. Then once the file is downloaded, run it in the usual way you would normally run a binary or a script (probably as root). I'm guessing it will set up a game directory with a game launcher, and you'll need to copy certain contents from your game CD to the newly created game directory. (This is how id's games work, and my understanding is that Epic does the same thing.) Check for documentation after you run the installer to see exactly which files need to be copied where.
