    You have to be sure that you uploaded the entire theme folder into your wp-content/themes folder.

    Basically like such:

    wp-content/themes/YourTheme

    Then have the image folder inside that and all other files.

    YourTheme/
    [images (folder)] <-images inside that folder
    index.php
    header.php
    single.php
    So On..

    CHMOD 755 or 777 or whatever then.. I know it's kinda of a crappy illustration...but this isn't like drawing on paper either lol!

    Open that theme folder and see if a similar theme folder is inside. Inside the theme folder, there should only be theme files and perhaps an image folder. So, if you see the following, as an example:

    /Blix/
    ./Blix/
    ../images/
    ... file.php
    ... file2.php
    ... etc...

    where Blix is the theme, then you need to delete the lot and re-upload just the second Blix folder with everything in it.

    "hmmm is the style.css a template? the rest i got were image files"

    The style.css is a big part of the template/theme but it isn't the template itself. All the files like: style.css, index.php, single.php, header.php, footer.php and so on, as well as the images, those files are "template" files that make up a "theme".

    Are any of the other files included with what you got? All the files like: index.php, single.php, header.php, footer.php and so on?

    If not, you may have just downloaded a "template" then. Which isn't a WordPress theme. What's the name of it and where did you get it from may I ask? Have a link to the place you got it from?

    makes up the "whole" template or theme.

    Incorrect. The files are "template" files that make up a "theme".

    That's NOT a theme, that's a "style" for WP 1.2.
    If you want to make it a theme. follow this guide in the Codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrade_1.2_to_1.5#Upgrading_Old_Templates_-_Easy

    Yep. Had you mentioned the theme name in your first post - as we always ask to do! - we could have saved a lot of energy, bandwith, time...
