I installed, the DoD:S from German DVD, but downloading via steam works also:
Gameplay (start and connect server)
It works very good and with enough fps (~ 30 - 50 fps on max settings), but some problems with the graphic - for example flickering / white sky or white planes in the sky - but its very good playable!
What does not
Download Steam via "steampowered.com" and install DoD:S from DVD (install gcf etc.), if you try this - Steam gives the message there will be not enough space on HDD.
So you have to install steam from DVD and then the game or you must register the game via steam and download it from steam server!
What was not tested
I think I tried everything, only join a game via steam ingame layer - for example to connect to a friends server i did not try.
There are no real problems, it works out of the Box - if you get it from DVD (incl. Steam) or via Steam Download! Tested on: Q6600 X1950 Pro (Ati CCS 8.4) 1024 MB Ram

If you would like Day of Defeat: Source to get more attention please vote for it!
So some things I've noticed that you need to get Day of Defeat to run better are:
Q: It seems that dod source works once steam as been installed as it is
said in the steam section. But once dod is launched, steam stays in
focus and obstruct the screen. When I try to lower the steam window,
everything freezes and I must reboot the PC, the keyboard is not
Whats going on?
A: One of the known bugs with steam is that it always is on top and cannot be minimized, or else the system crashes. So if the steam window is still on your screen when you start your game, simply X out of it instead of trying to minimize it.
