Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to install a dedicated halflife server and I got stuck on this part:
[root@onionknight2 hlds_l]# ./steam
Checking bootstrapper version ...
Getting version 7 of Steam HLDS Update Tool
Downloading. . . . . . . . . . .
tar: steam: Cannot open: File exists
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
update failed, please run "tar xzUf LinuxHldsUpdateTool_7.pkg" to install the latest steam binary, errno 2 "No such file or directory"
I _believe_ I have found the problem, and that is because the "steam" file is hidden and therefor it can't find the file. But I'm a newbie to Linux and I don't know how to make the file visible again.
I did some experiments and I know that its not made invisible by adding a . before the file name (i.e .steam) and I can only find it in a directory by typing "ls steam", if I just type "ls" I won't find it. If I change the name of it it gets visible again, it is also not hidden when it's in other directories.
So how do I change it? (Btw, I did unzip the LinuxHldsUpdateTool_7.pk but that didn't help)
