I only play on LAN, so I can even set up as much instances as I like with a single CD-key \o/
Paliper: Yeah :) No worries it gets confusing with Blizzard games. The only requirement for D2 right now is a cdkey to install it, and if you play online, playing on the b.net servers.
(still, I bought the game several times, so I probably have a couple valid CD-keys lying somewhere…)
But LAN play between Linux and Windows clients worked well last time I gave it a try, as long as everyone is on the same version (1.13d in my case).
The only thing Iʼm missing by not playing on Battle.net are the ladder-only runic words, but I think I remember a mod adding these in the solo and LAN modes.
