    first of all im new here so hi.
    when i start the half life installation it runs instead of it steam
    so i thought ok lets install steam i made a account and put in the registration code of it
    then i retryed to start the installation of half life 2 but
    it gives a weird faulth: steam says that i have not enough free disk space.
    and i have more then 400 gigabyte free :S
    what did i wrong? is it a production faulth? please help me.

    I am not to sure. If you are a first time steam user...

    1) install steam, let it then update the client
    2) create a account
    3) login with that account
    4) register the cdkey, it might need you to have the disk in the drive to verify.
    5) click on the game in the game list, and it will download the entire game with all latest patches.

    It will continue dling hl2 when steam is only running, you can close steam, and it will pause. Re-open it and it will continue. Steam is on your computer, therefore hl2 will also be on the computer ;).
