Unhappy i need ALOT of help setting up my HLDS

ok basically i want to install my half life dedicated server once everything is installed i should be ok.

I have a LINUX webhost and hlds_l_3109_full.bin for the server. I have a guide but it just says do this and type that it doesnt say where . i read about SSH or something and have tried finding a program but it wouldnt connect to my webhost.

What i really would like is someone to tell me wot i need to do to start extracting the file, and if possible some links to places i can get anything i need!

i can give u any extra info if you need it jsut ask

im a total noobie in need, the help would be GREATLY appreciated!

well if you have access to the machine that the file hlds_l_3109_full.bin is
located, all you need to do is open a terminal/console and navigate to
the directory where the file is, and first make the file executable by typing:
chmod +x hlds_l_3109_full.bin
and then execute the file by typing :\

from what i understand this is where your getting stuck at, and thats the
best i can explain it to you to execute the file...
If you don't know where the terminal/console is then maybe tell us what
distro your using and maybe I or someone else can tell you where to
click around to, to open it up ...
I apologize if this is not what your asking, but that is what i am understanding.
