Download HLDS Update Tool from Steam website.
Install it.
Download "valve" content with it.
Install ESF content into HLDS.
Install ECX content into ESF.
Launch the HLESFDS with hlds.exe.

HLDS does have nothing to do with Steam!

Install HLDS Update Tool to let's say C:\HLServer folder.
Open command prompt (Start > Run), type "cmd" and hit OK. Then download the content, etc.

no, this tool will download the server files for a proper show in the find server lists
All you have to do is download it in a separated directory and then copy the files to your esf root folder.

If you never used HLDS Update Tool, please don't post.

Use exactly as I wrote:
Code:
-dir .
Can't you see the dot?

It will automatically asign the folder of where the HldsUpdateTool.exe is.

Create a file named steam_appid.txt in "esf" folder and write number 70 in it.
