    The instructions are on the coupon from what I can remember. You can choose either to get the game sent to you physically, or download it via Valve's online service Steam. If you choose the Steam option you get the original Half-life free.

    If you have broadband it is most probably worth using the Steam option. I used to hate Steam but they have sorted it out now and it works really well.

    Yeah when you start Steam you register an account you give in your CD-Key for the game and it keeps a record. If you had to reformat or whatever you load Steam back up and it will automatically download the games again for you.

    The only way you would lose the game was if you lost your account.
