    Yeah, you can use FTP. Navigate to wp-content/themes/ and upload the theme (folder included) there. Then, in your admin account, click on "Presentation" and select the theme, and it'll be your active theme.

    thanks, Amulet, for the reply... just another question: say my blog is located at http://www.gilgamesh.com/blog, in that case, did you mean i should navigate to ftp://www.gilgamesh.com/blog/wp-content/themes/, with my wordpress id and password, and then upload the theme folder?

    Small point of clarification: ftp doesn't use (nor care about) your wordpress id. It cares about whatever id and password your host gave you.

    As for the rest, yes: ftp://www.gilgames.com/blog/wp-content/themes/your new theme folder]
