Ok so everywhere that i can find to help u install themes all say that extract them then run ./configure then make then install, but when i type ./configure it says its not a valid directory, so i tried just configure and it says not a valid command, what is going on.

After having looked at the error messages and you distribution which, is slackware I think you'll have to think of a different approach to the problem.

Presuming you clicked on "Slackware download" and downloaded the package for Slackware which would be named crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz - you'll have to do as described below:
After having downloaded the file crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz, do not extract it, save it to a directory. Now use konsole to change to the directory where you saved crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz and run the following command-->
installpkg crystal-0.9.9-i486-1.tgz

This command will install the package for you and then after I'd assume you know how to get KDE to use crystal theme. ;-)

When you run the command installpkg, it outputs errors but, the screen scrolls so fast you'll never notice. So, after running installpkg scroll up and see if there are any error messages. Probably, you don't have the required libraries installed, I'm not sure. But, do llok for the error from installpkg and post them over here.

Have you checked that the decoration is available in kcontrol -> appearance & themes -> window decorations. If not try the source package (tar.bz2) and do
Code:
$./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
$make
#make install

If its window decoration then it should be available at Kontrol -> Appearance & Themes -> Window Decorations.
