Magento Checkout, Trying to create a new module for free products

I'm triying to create a new module to bypass checkout process for free downloadable products. As I'm not a developer I need some help with xml files of module.

 

I've this folder structure:

app/etc/modules/Fe_Freecheckout.xml

app/code/local/Fe/Freecheckout/controllers/CheckoutController.php app/code/local/Fe/Freecheckout/etc/config.xml

 

And these are the contents of files:

CheckoutController.php

 

<?php
public function purchaseAction() {
if (!Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn()) {
        $this->_redirectUrl(Mage::getBaseUrl().'customer/account');
        return;
 }
 $request = $this->getRequest();
 $id = $request->getParam('id');
 $product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')
                ->load($id)
                ->setStoreId(Mage::app()->getStore()->getId());
 if(!($product->getIsVirtual() && $product->getFinalPrice() == 0)){
     Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->addError($this->__('Method only available for Free Downloadable Items'));
     return $this;
 }
 $onepage = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/type_onepage');
 /* @var $onepage Mage_Checkout_Model_Type_Onepage */
 try{
     $quote = $onepage->getQuote();
     /* @var $quote Mage_Sales_Model_Quote */
     $quote->addProduct($product);
     Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->setCartWasUpdated(true);
     $onepage->initCheckout();
     $payment=array('method'=>'free');
     $onepage->savePayment($payment);   
     $onepage->saveOrder();
     $this->getResponse()->setRedirect('/downloadable/customer/products');
 }
 catch(Exception $e){
     $result = $e->getMessage();
     Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->addError($result);
 }
 }
 ?>

app/etc/modules/Fe_Freecheckout.xml

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<config>
    <modules>
        <Fe_Freecheckout>

            <!-- Whether our module is active: true or false -->
            <active>true</active>

            <!-- Which code pool to use: core, community or local -->
            <codePool>local</codePool>

        </Fe_Freecheckout>
    </modules>
</config>

And this is app/code/local/Fe/Freecheckout/etc/config.xml where i don't know how register my checkout controller:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!-- The root node for Magento module configuration -->
<config>

    <!--
        The module's node contains basic
        information about each Magento module
    -->
    <modules>

        <!--
            This must exactly match the namespace and module's folder
            names, with directory separators replaced by underscores
        -->
        <Fe_Freecheckout>

            <!-- The version of our module, starting at 0.0.1 -->
            <version>0.0.1</version>

        </Fe_Freecheckout>

    </modules>

</config>

What is the required code in config to register the CheckoutController.php?

Thank you.
