I am kind of new at linux, but not really handicapped with computers so i can understand alot, i just need assistance, i have downloaded Cedega (as a setup file??) and installed, it goes through and says successful, it says its creating a path home/.wine/fake_windows (or something like that, im not looking at it right now). But when i check there is no path there.

Also i downloaded SteamInstall.exe, i type
cedega SteamInstall.exe
it doesnt give me an error but it doesnt do anything.

Very confused, i gave up on trying to figure it out myself. I need some help. Thanks!

In case you may not have known this is the syntax to view hidden files on the command line:

ls -a

.wine and anything after represents a hidden file.

Also check out this howto (that is if you have not already) for installing Steam and a few others.

I have wine installed. i try to install steam with it and i get :

[Dylan@localhost .wine]$ cd /home/Dylan/.wine/fake_windows
[Dylan@localhost fake_windows]$ wine SteamInstall.exe
wine: chdir to /home/Dylan/.wine/wineserver-localhost.localdomain : No such file or directory
[Dylan@localhost fake_windows]$

Is the cedega you have the CVS version or did you pay for a subscription? I ask this because if you paid for a subscription the use of Point2play makes the installation of Steam and many others way easy. If your using the CVS version you can click on this link for a free graphical frontend (like point2play) to make installing easy. And one more link this is where you can get loki installers for many games instead of trying to do it manually on the command line.
