Run Half-Life once before you try to install ESF.
Use ESF 1.2.3.

Don't forget you need to use Steam.
If your installer is corrupted you'll have to find another one.

You are using Half-Life 1 and not HL : Source or HL2 correct?

Also if you could reply with the exact error message, it would be helpfull.

Install Half Life into the StemApps> your account name

You should be able to dowlonad Half Life from the my games list and have it install to the correct directory automatically.

Okay, here is what you do.

Download STEAM from http://www.STEAMPOWERED.com

Install it.

Run it and make a new account.

Log In.

Go to view game list (NOT PLAY GAMES)

At the bottom should be a button that says something like "I have already purchased one of these games" CLICK THAT

You should be asked to enter a CD-Key (Enter you HL1 CD Key)

Then, double click HALF LIFE in your PLAY GAMES list, it will begin downloading.

You probalby joined a server overseas. If you look at the server list, it has a Latency comumn, the lower the latency on a server the less laggy it will be. But you will never have zero lag unless you host a server yourself.

It also depends on your internet connection.

Note that STEAM updates your games so when its updating you get extra lag.

If you want to see if the game is updating rightclick on the STEAM icon ind choose monitor. It shows you if anything is beeing downloaded.
