Hello Neil again

If you go in to your home folder there will be a hidden folder (press ctrl + H to view them) called .amsn and inside is a folder called skins.

extract the file you downloaded in to that folder.

If you are not able to do it then enter the command in a terminal

gksu nautilus

and this will start nautilus as root and extract the file you downloaded in to that folder.
