The client is still pretty buggy - playing on just about any network
server will usually have the client crashing on me whenever the action
gets even remotely heavy.

As a pure quake server, however, it seems pretty stable.
quake.lithium.com is a FreeBSD 2.2 box running the Linux quake server,
and I've never heard of it crashing.  When I play it with the DOS
client, things are fine.  The linux quake client is pretty lame anyway -
it won't play reasonably on anything but an 8 bit display.
