    afraid candybar is the only way i know. but i read somewhere that you can go into the library and just change the .png files, but when i tried that it didn't work

    Click on the icon...copy the icon or picture by apple + c ... apple + i or right click to get info... Click on the icon right in the info window and apple + v or paste.

    If you want the dock icon to change, you have to go to applications window, do the above and drag the new icon to the dock.

    Here is a step by step instruction from apple.

    this process is kind of weird but has worked for me. Get the icon you want to use. right click and choose "get info". single click the icon and copy it. Now right on the item you want to change and select ''get info" single click the icon in the window and paste.

    edit: damn i need to learn to type faster.

    This worked for me. It is one feature that didn't change from OS 9.
