    I think a number of people here are going to tell you that downloading the Doom III beta is not legal and therefore isn't deserving of a reply.

    Rick is quite right!

    There is no way in h... that you've gotten ahold of a legal version of D3, and since TechSpot has a very clear policy on piracy (which is that we don't condone it) you won't be getting any public help...
    There could be someone who'd PM you though :/

    Anyways, not quite sure what framerates you'd be able to get out of it even if you did manage to make it run...
    The FX5200 isn't, I'm sorry to say, a very good card when it comes to speed...
    Thus you'll either have crawling speed, or you'll be running a path optimized for GeForce 4 or earlier, which means less eye candy...

    He doesn't need to be banned. He just needs to be more careful.
