    You have to extract them from GCF files. Download GCFSpace program, then go to your steam folder and you will find some files. Open tf2materials.gcf and then search inside, extract them or just open them without extracting

    More importantly, Hammer should find them by default even with them being in the cache, thus: you have Hammer set up wrong somehow.

    Read, Spike :p

    As for the issue at hand, do you mean HL2 textures? It should never have HL1 resources... Are you SURE the TF2 ones aren't there? When you load under the TF2 config it loads all shared materials that a TF2 purchase comes with, try typing "tf" in the keyword box.
