If the mod is a stand alone mod the directory you should install it into is likely to be this (or the equivalent): C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods (it should then appear on your Steam Games list) If the mod is supposed to work inside of Half-Life 2, the directory for maps is: C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\<your username>\half-life 2\hl2\maps (type name of map in console) If you are trying to install skins, the directory is this: C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\<your username>\half-life 2\hl2\materials\models (you may have to create this directory) Maybe it would help me more if I knew the nature of the mod.

The read-me also says where to put the downloads.

This is assuming that the download came with a Readme.
