Naturally, you can't play without latency unless you're the host. So you better select a server that's (geographically) close to your location.
Just fire up the server browser and select a server.

Also helps if you set the server browser to sort the servers by ping starting with the lowest ping and going to the highest. The lower the ping, the smaller the delay.

You can calculate the delay in the following way BTW. 1 second delay = 1000 ping

Well the one people are playing is ESF 1.2.3

There is a full install of it. Ofcourse you also need Half Life 1 updated and in your STEAM games list if you want to play online, since thats the only way to search for servers. There are some issues with HL1s latest update though, so you have to opt for the beta update in the STEAM game properties in order to get the mouse working correctly and some stuff like that.

Those issues are caused with HL1 being ported to linux BTW.
