Did you download the 4.02 patch for UT? If not, do so.

I am having the same problem. My system is:
PIII 500 - 256MB RAM - Ultra TNT2 - 7200 RPM HD - Diamond Monster Sound MX300
I installed and play Tribes with no problems at all. I installed and played Half-Life with no problems at all. I just installed Quake3 Arena. It looks beautiful and plays incredibly smooth at 1024X768, all detail at high right out of the box on internet and off, so I do not think there is anything wrong with my system. UT locks up my system as soon as I start it. I don't even have time to make any changes in the options. I start in safe mode with 3D sound AND 3D video disabled and it still locks up my system. The suggestions I have been getting are to reload my OS or get a VooDoo card. These ideas are insane. No game is worth that much trouble especially when all the other hot titles work perfect right out of the box. I need help fellas! THanks
