Problems with steam

I cant get steam installed. look at following

john@COSTANZO:~/c$ cvswinex SteamInstall.exe
-bash: cvswinex: command not found

then I tried this:

john@COSTANZO:~/c$ wine SteamInstall.exe
Could not stat /home/john/.wine/%HOME% (No such file or directory), ignoring drive F:
err:font:Fontconfig_Init Fontconfig support was not compiled in at compile time.
err:font:FTAlias_FindBestBuiltins Could not create alias for serif fonts
Unable to find a sufficient number of fonts available to FreeType.
FreeType will not be loaded as a result.
FreeType could not be loaded.
This is not necessarily a fatal error, however some
applications require FreeType to be installed and
may not function or display text correctly otherwise.
Please consult the WineX Font FAQ for more details
about this problem
fixme:xrender:X11DRV_XRender_Finalize Free cached glyphsets

Any ideas? I have winex installed so I know that cannot be the issue

well two things strike me when i look at this ...
the first line in the error makes me think that your .wine/config file is incorrectly set up, and then secondly it appears that you didn't install the fonts needed for winex .... which are Tahoma and Marlett ...
