Within your home directory, there will be directory called .fluxbox allowing you copy both a style and background there which will be displayed in your menu allowing you to select them. Check out the fluxbox docs here http://fluxbox.org/docbook/en/html/chap-themes.html.

I put the configuration files and the pixmaps directory in the .fluxbox/themes directory but the theme still doesn't work as it should. The window buttons change to black and white instead of red (theme colour)

You can get the whitebox.dsl extension from the repository and use that to customize your fluxbox style.

Another option is if you like one of the current styles that comes with DSL but just want to tweak it, you can find these in /usr/share/fluxbox/styles and the backgrounds in /usr/share/fluxbox/backgrounds. Alot of times this is a good way to get the hang of it starting out. When you have created your file, you should place it in /home/dsl/.fluxbox/styles and it will show up in the styles menu.
