The mydirthill.com link is simple and straightforward, with the exception that you need to know the configuration step is referring to creating a orangebox/tf/cfg/server.cfg file. The forum.srcds.com has a comprehensive list of all available server configuration settings.

That said, we now have our own TF2 server up at tf.pipboy.org. Hopefully we’ll get a regular game going at least once a week.

Update: So much for that. Our cheap dedicated server’s ~2ghz celeron couldn’t fit 7 people in a tf2 game without dying. Back to the pubs…
