    I have played the 1.6 version of CS and didnt like it that much. I uninstalled steam and it messed up my CS and HL. Well that done and over. I have heard that you can play both 1.5 and 1.6 with out making another HL folder. Is this true?

    Yes... If you install steam, it doesn't actually do anything to your current 1.5 installation (assuming you have 1.5 installed before steam) It actually just copies the files and updates them, but under the steam directory. So you can still play either one without uninstalling steam. Just make sure you open 1.5 seperate from steam. Like, make sure your icon on your desktop to 1.5 still points to 1.5 and not to the steam directory

    Well, when you install Steam, there is an option that enables you to keep your existing CS files intact, or overwrite them so they no longer work with 1.5. I think the default is to mess them up, so many people have had problems not being able to play 1.5 anymore. So make sure you check the right options when you install Steam.

    Also, you could just install Steam, then install HL and CS after that. This way, you get your Steam, and your 1.5 CS files will be brand new.
