Only two ways to a safe visit on the Internet:

A) Forget about it...

Don't let me stop you from doing something stupid, by all means, dare to be stupid.

Use the common rule, there isn't a safe operating system unless you are aware of what's dangerous, and what isn't on the Internet.
Giving your unix root password to COTDC wouldn't be very safe for instance..

You still have a root password. Anyways, this has gone enough off topic, club-nub would be a good place to continue the discussion if you want..

Just look for any Q3A tutorials. There are tons out there on many, many subjects. There is a link earlier in the thread for setting up Radiant for OA.

Look at the "basic level design".

Bubba's tutorials are good, with exception for one thing; he teaches the use of 'hollows'.

This should really be avoided, it is the work of t3h d3vil!

What hollow does is basically to generate a hollow section of selected brushes, but it fails to understand where to split, in order to minimize vertices.

If you get a high vertice count, your map will require a more powerful system in order to draw decent, playable framerates for the players.

I made a screenshot of a basic cube (room) with 'hollow' and how different it is from an optimized section, even though you cannot see the difference on the finished result, the Quake III engine can.

It might not matter in a small, enclosed, 1v1 tournament map without walls, but make something with a bit of size and you'll notice the difference at once.
Learn it the right way, it will save you from lots of headache in the long run.
