    Unzip them.
    Upload them into the /wp-content/themes directory.

    If you do not see any new themes in the Presentation area, check that the theme are correctly in place:

    Correct
    /wp-content/themes/theme-name/style.css

    Wrong
    /wp-content/themes/theme-name/theme-name/style.css

    If you are using Windows, get this:
    FileZilla_2_2_18_setup.exe

    Some instructions are here:
    http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/FileZilla/

    And the FileZilla home page has excellent docs too.

    Try ftp://ftp.myblogpageaddress.com

    If that doesn't work, contact your host's support to find out how you [can] ftp into your account.

    lol...a funny thing just happened. i tried my other blog address, the site exists, but my password fails to access...how ironic...

    YES! i checked the case-sensitive thing, i just logged my blog account and quickly tried to access my ftp site, but it still fails. =(

    What would YOU do if this happens to you? =)

    Do you have some sort of control panel through your host?

    ftp pass and blog pass would be different.
    If it were me, I would create a new user in my webhost cpanel, give that user full access to the domain and then remember the password :)

    Where is your blog ?

    my blog for wordpress is

    http://wcdctest1.wordpress.com

    and my blog which "exists" in ftp server is

    http://wcdctest1.theblog.cc

    now, i wonder if you meant to say "/wp-admin/" at the end of my blog address or something that i've never seen before.

    i'm also concerning about creating a specific ftp account to access my blog ftp server or the account for my ftp server is same as http blog account.

    For any blog at wordpress.com, you cannot have any other theme apart from those you are given.

    The .cc blog ? I would stand by what has been said above about filezilla and ftp.

    Both of those addresses are "hosted" blogs - and we do not support those. Ask them.
    (and in case of wordpress.com you cannot upload new themes.)
    <sigh>waste of time and cyberspace... again, because posters don't start with their blog's URI</sigh>

    I used to do IM support.
    I suddenly got dozens of new friends and logging into any network just brought a blizzard of messages. Every single time. That's why I don't do it now.

    i...don't understand...
    My blogs are hosted? Does that mean i can't install a new theme?
    What about ftp server? Do my blogs have one? Can i access those?
