What have you tried so far? Post some error messages. Also, dig around here. There are several threads with people with the same distribution as you, with detailed instructions which libraries they had to install before installing Darwinia, and I suppose they stay valid on 10.4.

Looks like it's trying to do something with KDE and fails. Beats me what. Maybe it installs the game before it tries the KDE trickery and you can run it from the command line with 'darwinia' already? Otherwise, sorry, I'll have to pass this on to someone who actually has access to the Linux installer.
