Installing a theme in Puppy Linux

Hi... I am new to Linux, having been a windows user since the days of 3.1. I currently have 2 PC's running, One with Mint 7 and Ubuntu and am not getting too much problems with them. The other PC has XP Home on it and also Puppy Linux loaded into RAM. My intention is to get rid of Windows totally when I think I know enough about Linux. I estimate that to be about a month from now. The main general problems I am finding at the moment are trying to grasp the terminologies used in Linux which are so much different to what I am used to in Windows. But I am learning and I think I am on a steep learning curve at the moment.

My question here is regarding the installation of themes in Puppy Linux. I have not just come up here and decided to ask, I have been looking at previous posts and various help and FAQ sections and have been trying for about 4 hours now. Although I have only one main question it does bring up a few sub questions.

I downloaded a theme from Somewhere on my PC I think it is downloaded. Where in Puppy Linux will I find the download and how do I get there?

Once located I then need to know how to install the theme in Puppy. I right clicked on the desktop and went to 'Chtheme GTK theme chooser' but my downloaded theme does not appear there. I can only assume that I am in the wrong window?

Can anyone please tell me how to download a them so that I can bring it up in 'change themes' and then chose it as my default.

I know this will sound stupid but I hope I can pe told in simple language as if I am told for instance to go to root and change my parameters (I appreciate that makes no sence at all) I would not have a clue where to find root or parameters.

I hope that by changing the theme my background will change and so will my icons and other things. But if not, I am confident that changing other things will be done on the same principle.

Thank you in advance for helping with what must be a very basic question and one day when I know more I will of course try and help others that are just coming to Linux.

Thanks, Nigel.

theme man

What do you mean by themes? If you mean the back drop then the curtains mean little to a house.
Remain ignorant.
