you have to extract the compresed file you downloaded in :

/home/"your username"/.icons
.icon is a hidden folder in your home directory . to see hidden files/folders press Ctrl-H while you are in the directory that contains the hidden file/folder you re looking for .
after you extract the downloaded icon theme , go to "System->Preferences->Appearance" , "theme" tab and click "customize" button . "Icons" tab and you should be able to see the new theme at the list .
