i have the hlds server files in a /. hlds (or whatever directory u want) is created by root in /:

mkdir /hlds

and it is owned by me:

chown -R erik.erik /hlds

now extract the tar ball files in /hlds with erik as the logged in user. user erik is the hl/cs administrator here - no need for root.

the hl/cs server files doesn't have to be in the folder '/usr/games'.
