yes, you should sterilize your substrate!
when it gets fully cool you're ready to sow...

microwave works.
nuking it at max for about 10 minutes hould be plenty.
but make sure the soil id good and moist or ull end up melting the container.

ive grown cacti without sterilising but using 'superol' to prevent fungus and it worked good too...

Yeah, when I'm planting cactus seeds I microwave my soil after getting it nice and wet. Seems to prevent any green growth in the containers.

put the cactus soil in a pot
wet the soil till it is damp
cover the pot in saran wrap
microwave for 1-2 minutes depending on microwave strenght and altitude.
allow soil to cool approixately 10-20 minutes
sow seeds and then recover the pot with the saran wrap
put in medium light with less that ~80 degrees if possible.
