You need the following files from original Dune II in order to play Dune Legacy:
- GERMAN.PAK (only for playing in german)
- FRENCH.PAK (only for playing in french)
It depends on your system and installation where to put these files. LEGACY.PAK is supplied with Dune Legacy and is already in the data directory. All the other files should be copied there too. If you are not allowed to copy files there you may copy these files inside the dunelegacy configuration directory inside a data directory (e.g. ~/.config/dunelegacy/data/ on unix).
It depends on how the game was compiled. Normally you should put these files under /usr/share/dunelegacy/ or /usr/local/share/dunelegacy/ . Just look for LEGACY.PAK. If you do not have root access to your system you should put them in your home directory under ~/.config/dunelegacy/data/ .
The installer has already asked for the files and put them in the installation directory. If not put the PAK-files inside your installation folder or if you do not have administrator privileges you should put them to C:\Documents and Settings\<YourName>\Application Data\dunelegacy\data\ .
MAC OS X:
The PAK-files have to be copied inside the application bundle. If you have followed the steps in the supplied dmg you have already copied them there. Otherwise just right-click on the bundle and select "Show Bundle Content". Then navigate into "Contents" and then into "Resources". There you will find LEGACY.PAK. Put the other PAK-files there too. Alternativly you can put them in your home directory under ~/.config/dunelegacy/data/ but putting them inside the application bundle is the preferred way.

If you want to fine tune the configuration of Dune Legacy you might want to take a look at the configuration file "Dune Legacy.ini". Depending on your system it is either placed in
- ~/.config/dunelegacy (on Linux)
- ~/Library/Application Support/Dune Legacy (on Mac OS X)
- C:\Documents and Settings\<YourName>\Application Data\dunelegacy\ (on Windows)
To play online via Internet you have to manually enable port forwarding if you use a NAT Router. Forward the Dune Legacy Server Port (Default is 28747) from your NAT Router to your computer. Use the same port on your router as configured in Dune Legacy.
Example: If your machine has IP 192.168.123.1 and your using the default Dune Legacy Port, than forward port 28747 from your router to 192.168.123.1:28747.
