    I'm using Tiger

    so I wanted to change my documents icon to a really fancy icon so I found this site called interfacelift.com and followed the steps to change it into a suitcase of some sort. But my documents wouldn't open, and a dialog box popped up and said something about how no application can be run with this and it had the option to choose an application. So I deleted the suitcase, and now the folder has turned into a UNIX file which is not accessible.

    How would I fix this problem?

    their faq on their website:

    1. How do I use the icons once I have downloaded them?
    Customizing icons under Mac OS X is straightforward. Simply click on the icon you would like to use and select 'Get Info' from the 'File' menu. In the window that pops up, click on the icon and select 'Copy' from the 'Edit' menu. Now close the info window, click on the icon you would like to change and again select 'Get Info' from the 'File' menu. Click on the icon inside the info window that appears and select 'Paste' from the 'Edit' menu. Close the info window and you are finished.
