how do i do this in installing colour?

from kde look, i found a colour scheme, anyway, i wanna install it, and the direction says to:

# Open konqueror
# Browse to ~/.kde/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes
# Move your new .kcsrc file into the konqueror window
# Open the KDE-Menu an start the Control Center
# Click on "Look and Feel" and "Colors"
# Choose your new color scheme and press "Apply"
# Have fun! :-)

the .kcsrc file is the colour
how do i MOVE it into the ~/.kde/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes?
when i try to browse ~/.kde/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes in konqueror (just by typing that in) it says

An error occured while loading http:/home/mark/.kde/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes:

Unknown host No host specified!

whats wrong? how do i install the colour scheme?
