I just downloaded the steam installer from Welcome to Steam
the file extention is .msi and since I am definatly a novice to Linux I checked up at Wine HQ and found out how to install an .msi file
this is what the procedure is ,
wine msiexec /i whatever.msi
so when I type wine msiexec /i SteamInstall.msi in my console
I get the error message :
err:msi:copy_package_to_temp failed to copy package L"SteamInstall.msi"
fixme:msi:MSI_OpenDatabaseW open failed r = 80030002 for L"SteamInstall.msi"
I would be lying if I claimed I had any idea what this means
any help would be aprieciated

Thanks for the responce
I have since tried the .exe version of the steam installer.
I was able to install steam with wine , no problem I updated, downloaded the games and as soon as I tried to play
the game dod and the other hl mods I tried all froze at startup.
I disabled the graphics card temp so that I could install the right driver (the ubuntu standard one for nvidia seemed to not work with steam) \
My computer was SCREWED! I was unable to even turn it on anymore, so I had to reformat right now im typing this on vista which I ****ing hate
I want to go back to linux but need graphics support, I think Im switching to sabayon
