I don't play counterstrike or have it installed.

With the help of certain utilities you don't have to activate the copy of HalfLife2 you purchased on line either, so they can ban all they want for all I care.

It won't magically make your FPS twice as high again. If that's what you think/expect you are in for a dissapointment.

What it does appear to do is substantially raise minimum frame rates and make the entire game feel a lot smoother than it used to.

This is on my XP2400+. I've only just upgraded to a3200+ and haven't gotten around to testing with it yet.

how do you know that after you install it, that the game is actually using it? EX. how do I know that when im in the game, that what I installed, is actually being used?

You should (hopefully) be able to feel an improvement in how the game plays.

This is a patch, not a mod, and although the author claims to impliment HDR/Parallax mapping, I can't really see the difference. I can however feel an improvement in the way the game handles itself on my system.

EDIT: if you are a geforce FX owner (5700 & above) the big tipoff that it's working is the fact you can now choose the DX9 renderer in the game.
