While we're on beginner's questions, let me throw in mine.

How the heck do you start up a game?!

I've figured it out new.  You have to start a server, tell it to set up AI's, 
start up a client, and then tell the server to start.  But I never did actually 
find this spelled out anywhere; I just dug through all the "set" options until 
I found the one I needed.

Hmm, perhaps there should even be a "single-player" mode for the client, which 
automatically starts up the server in an xterm and gives it a bunch of default 

Anyway, great game.  I spent many hours playing the original Civilization, and 
now I can spend many hours playing this one.
