1. Go to /addons/ and make new directory named dproto
– it is a game directory; cstrike for Counter-Strike, valve for Half-Life, etc
2. Copy dproto.dll or dproto_i386.so to /addons/dproto/
3. Go to metamod installation directory (usually its /addons/metamod/) and edit plugins.ini:
add this line for windows
win32 addons\dproto\dproto.dll
or this for linux
linux addons/dproto/dproto_i386.so
at the beginning of the file
4. Copy dproto.cfg to cstrike folder.
5. Start the server.

   when server loads, type "meta list" in console. You'll see something like this:
    Currently loaded plugins:
