I have used Steam for Counter Strike. I suppose that Steam does make everything legal, but if you own the discs then you should be able to install it from the discs itself. Anyways, instead of posting here you can get better support at steampowered.com under Support.
They will be able to give you better support than anybody at Frihost, unless they've beta tested Steam, no offence guys.
I hope you can get your issues fixed.
The more I think about it, the more I see how ignorant I am of things. Sadly, I never thought of actually contacting STEAM. Well enough. . . I will do it right now! Thank you for the advice.

Dont Buy at Ebay!
i'd like steam.
Steam could be better, but it appears to be intrinsically bloated. The update news are so annoying. It takes a long to connect and load too. Better when I could play cs without it legally. However it does have its advantages, like the easiness to pruchase things and, when you want, some news about the market.
