    Google OS X icons. There is a place online that has thousands of awesome icon sets that you can download for free. You can even search their site and there is a way to change your resource file for all the dock icons, different finder, safari, mail, every app available, iphoto with specific cameras, same with imovie, different themes ie. snow marbles etc, photoshop and other adobe, different trash can eject and burn icons. I use a LOTR one ring for my HDD and a marvin the martian for my second HDD.

    Have fun. Make sure to back up your original resource file.

    Here is the link. The faq/how-to will explain the resource file. They also mention a program called Candybar $12.95 that is for more novice users. Doesn't require hacking. Might be worth it.
