Download the salamanderskins Theme

Salamander Skins

wget http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/salamanderskins-6.x-1.1.tar.gz

FTP/Copy/SCP your files to the desired themes folder in your Drupal installation. Since the themes folder at the top level of Drupal is typically reserved for Drupal core themes, you should create a sites/all/themes/ directory and put uploaded themes there. If you are running a multi-site installation of Drupal, you can create a themes folder under sites/my.site.folder and put themes there that are specific to a particular site in your installation. Themes that will be shared between all sites should be placed in sites/all/themes.

root@drupal6:/usr/share/drupal6/sites/all/themes# tar xvzf /usr/share/drupal6/salamanderskins-6.x-1.1.tar.gz

Enable the theme and make the default.

Go to administer > site building > themes. Check the ‘Enabled’ box next to the theme and then click the ‘Save Configuration’ button at the bottom.

Salamanderskins is now the default
