It appears as if you might need to do some "research" to narrow down what you need and what you want to do.

I suggest google and maybe searching for something like "setting up a half life linux server".

Read some sites, determine what you think is the best distro for the job or at least what distro you want to use and then go from there.

If you are expecting someone one to post the numbered steps to setting up a linux server and installing the half life software, you might be waiting a while.

Of course I'm new to the forums so you might get lucky, but I suspect you will need to do some research and come back. You have a better chance of getting an answer to a specific question, as opposed to a entire walk through on how to setup what you want.

Just the view from here.
