call of duty - pak0.pk3 - nightmare!

guys and gals,

i've a nightmare. just bought call of duty on ebay. it turns out that the disk is corupted (something activision know about, grrr...) and i cant get it to work unless i get a copy of pak0.pk3 of a working instalation.

does anyone have it?! i know its a long shot but i'm getting nothing back from activision support....

i've managed to copy most of it off the disk and now narrowed it down to the corupt section on the cd. if anyone can sort me out with those (theres around 100 or so small files) it'd be great.

anything would be great!

ah right, think i got it - actually found this page last night but didnt see the bit saying 'These are the Linux dedicated server binaries for Call of Duty, updated to work with version 1.4 of the Windows client'

i'll give it a go and see what happens.

thanks for the replys everyone, once again you came up with the goods!

Forgot to add,

This is a known problem with some early release versions of this game,the missing files are click here if your'e technically minded.

For some reason Activision do not see this fault as justification for refund or replacement.
