On BF1942 & PunkBuster

The PunkBuster Website has word on the release of a new version 1.074 of the PB server for Battlefield 1942 for download and auto-update (thanks Ant). In addition, they have a friendly warning for BF1942 players on what to expect from the anti-cheat program now that it is part of the game:
The initial roll out of PunkBuster for Battlefield 1942 has gone smoothly. We will be adding detection patterns and routines for all public (and many private) BF1942 cheats/hacks during the next few days. As a friendly notice to the BF1942 community, this news post is made about the topic of permanent PB bans. As with other games that are supported by PB, if a player is caught by PB with a hack or cheat that directly modifies PB or interferes with any PB function (including the ability to take accurate screenshots), that player's PB GUID will be immediately subject to permanent ban from ALL PB enabled servers without recourse. It is in direct violation of PunkBuster's license agreement to attempt to use PunkBuster software in a manner not consistent with PunkBuster's design and purpose. This is an issue we take very seriously and for which we do not give extra chances. If you are an honest player or admin, DO NOT attempt to test cheats that interfere with PB on public PB enabled servers. Regardless of what the punks say on their various websites, none of their hacks are undetectable by PunkBuster. If you are caught with one of the hacks that interferes with PB and your GUID is permanently banned from all PB Servers, we will not remove your GUID from the ban list even if you were "testing" or even if another member of your family got caught when using your computer. You will still be able to play the game on and/or host servers that have PunkBuster disabled.

No, the GUID (unique identifier) is a PunkBuster only number. You will no longer be able to play on PB enabled servers.
