LAN Party Games?

I'm having a LAN party this weekend and want to have some fun multiplayer games for people to play. Preferably older games so people with older comps can play too and for the nostalgia factor. Also freeware/abandonware games would be great, as I think aside from copies of Starcraft it'd be difficult for my friends to all scrounge up a copy of the same game.

So far we're planning to run:
Red Alert
Duke Nukem 3D
Soldat
World of Padman

Do you all have some good suggestions?

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone, but I'm looking for freeware/abandonware games. Any suggestions along those lines? Things that are readily available for download online? (Thanks for the Enemy Territory suggestion!)

    Doom 2.

    i dont know how it hooks up with LAN anymore, but holy mother of GOD if you want to have a nostalgia effect, there you go.

    Doom 2 co-op on LAN was one of the most fun experiences online i've ever had.

    I have never played either of these games on a Lan or even multiplayer but I think their potential is threw the roof.

    Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel

    and Giants: Citizen Kuboto (Thats spelled incorrectly though)
