The way that I did it was to navigate to Computer|System
Configuration|Login Screen Setup.
There I selected the Graphical Greeter tab and clicked on Install New Theme.
I then broswed to the compressed file that contained the theme I wanted
to install and clicked Install.
The new theme then showed up in the list of available themes.
I hope this helps
