What version of UT2k4 do you have exactly?
What is the exact error message?
Maybe a screen shot can help, also run the installer from a console emulation (e.g. xterm) to see additional output from the installer.

Looks like either your install destination ran out of free space or that your dvd is "broken". Did you manage to create an ISO from your dvd?

It should work even if you install the game as root user.
What error do you get?

You can reinstall the game using any user you want, use the user who is going to play UT2k4 or run this command:

chown -R user:group UT2K4_INSTALL_DIRECTORY

as root user, of course you have to substitute user, group and UT2K4_INSTALL_DIRECTORY before

ut2004 solved
