gnome 2.0 icons

I know that there's a bunch of post on icons, yet none seem to fix my problem.
I'm running redhat 8, gnome 2.0.6 and I metacity. I'm having the same problems that the other people are having. I go to and download some of their pretty icons pack. I try everything to get those things to work, but no luck. If anyone has run into this same problem, with the same versions of the software named above and fixed it, help me out. Step by step cause I tried everything else.
