I know Steam has been having trouble the last week or so, on and off. Just go to the "activate a product on steam" and input the CD key, no need to install from the CD.

but i can't even instal the game the first thing to come up is to create a steam account and that fails so i can't move on to the game install

Go to steam and download the steam client directly, install it, create an account and then go to the "My Games" tab and choose "activate product on steam"
