hi

download the theme. does it have a .gz or .bz2 or .rpm

rpm:
rpm -ivh packagename.rpm

.gz

tar zxvf package.tar.gz

.bz2

tar jxvf package.tar.bz2

if its a .gz or .bz2 then there will be a directory by the name. go into that and read the INSTALL and REAME file. usually it is

./configure
make
make install.

if you are using kde then there is a application called ark which can be used to extract the compressed files(.gz and .bz2) easily

regards
