comment Second HDD from Windows as backup
Never one to assume what hardware people have these days. Never certain until they spell it out. Agree not necessary in that case, but also do not know what they have in the system (wish these would be more specific in posts).

comment Can't boot 13.10 from USB
Do you have other devices plugged in at this point to the computer such as external storage? That can slow the process down considerably. Also, is your computer 64-bit or 32-bit? If it is 32-bit, well, the Saucy ISO is 64-bit by default.

comment Installing Steam on Ubuntu 13.10 - Need Execute Permissions
You need to allow Steam to be located where the files can be accessed and executed. This means you should place this into a drive where you will have permissions. Root is the only user that mounts file systems at the partition level and altering the system to allow a user root permissions is really not the right way to do that. Increasing the size of your /home partition might be a better alternative. You can store files in another directory, but don't believe that this will be accessible without a lot of extra work that isn't really advisable from a security standpoint.

comment 13.04 64-bit install not enough disk space
If you could run df -h and move the output over by 4 lines it will format correctly as shown on your screen. It appears that you are 98% full in / (root) and the installer does not have enough room to write the data it is trying to write/read or process. Would recommend a reinstall with more virtual disk space.
