Hi Harry
Which are those icons ? If those are general system icons, but not iconpacks, you cannot install them, you are to replace system icons with the downloaded icons. A tutorial link to how to do it is available below my sig

To replace a lot of those you are going to have to swap a lot of your system file icons out

Nice choice. Those are my favorite ! You know, those are created by Mark , Mr Grim !!

But at the download you linked, contains all png images, you cannot make them use as icons (without converting). Better you search in "Customized icons" section of Virtual Customs • Home • Customize Your Virtual World! . It must be there . Or you can contact Mark for better suggestions, but he is not such active nowadays

Yeah, change all the icons you want / can and then save it as your own icon package.

What stuff you downloaded ? If toy got the iconpackager with the installer, tuneup utilities will not needed at all . Actually the installer is not capable to be used with tuneup. If you have download the icon pack without installer, you may apply tuneup to change icons . Though the lovely glassy folder icon will not be made by tuneup at all Coz tuneup doesnot support live folders.

BTW, if you are planning to apply the iconpack installer, please backup your imageres.dll, shell32.dll and imagesp1.dll in a partition other than c manually, and have a bootable os disk in hand , like Puppy Linux 5.0 . Otherwise the installer may/might cause trouble.
