Unhappy Help with installing icons

Hello, I have downloaded Crystal SVG 1.0 icon set ( and I want to install it at KDE 3.0. I decompressed the file and went to the control center > icons, but I don't know what to do next.

Please HELP

I'm right there with you.

I'm on a roll today...downhill, at an 85 degree angle.

Here's where I am:
crystal.tar.gz unpacked and untarred in one of my $home subdirectories.

When I use KDE Control Center-->Appearance&Themes-->Icons to try to 'Install New Theme,' I choose */index.desktop, I get 'The file is not a valid icon theme archive!' However, it's the only thing I can highlight and select, TTBOMK.

Can anyone help?

Point KDE CC to the tarred, zipped file.
