here :D

1. Unpack 1 folder 2 files to /usr/share/gnome-screehackver/
* ( directory hack-images lock-dialog-hack.glade lock-dialog-hack.gtkrc

2. Open gconf-editor (Alt+F2, type 'gconf-editor' and press enter) change the entry apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme from 'default' to 'hack'

3. Enjoy!

it wont let me copy the files into usr/share/gnome-screensaver/

and im guessing unpacking is the same as extracting the files...?
