I downloaded the new skin. It says to
1. Control-Click on iTunes
2. Select 'Show Package Contents'
3. Open Contents folder, then Resource folder
4. Make a copy of the iTunes.rsrc
5. Install new skin and have fun!

When I get to "Make a copy of the iTunes.rsrc" I'm stuck. I don't get how and y I make a copy of it and how do I install the new skin? I did it somehow before but i don't remember how...Please help

Not on a mac right now, but I think you just drag the file to another location and hold down the option key before you let go. (it could be command, not 100% sure)

You'll know it's the right one when you get a + underneath your cursor as you're dragging it.

Try downloading iTunes and reinstalling. Also back up files before you mess around with them... ;)

O'ahu, HI
#1 through #4 are clear but..

5. Install new skin and have fun!
What specifically do I do to install the skin? I can copy the rsrc no prob, I can get whichever version of iTunes I need, I just need to know how to apply the skin. A step-by-step for #5, plz. For example, here's what's in the Black_Glacier_v31 folder I got.

Either:
a) This is the Windows download.
or
b) What do I put in where?

I can get to the Package Contents folders just fine. I just need to know what items I put where.
