Guys, for your information:

Valve already fixed the "Steam on lan" problem a long time ago.
You can play cs 1.6 and cs:source on LAN without having to logon on steam !

They made a BIG mistake in the past i hope others won't do/try the same
thing, it won't help your product. I hope there will be an (good) BF2 linux
server from the start so "we" can put as many servers needed online without
having to wait for the linux version.
