Hi, I just downloaded a new screensaver, and I'm just wondering how to be able to set it as my screensaver. Thanks!

it would help if you could post a link to wherever you got the screensaver

its written in that page itself,

Description:
Alternative lock dialog for Gnome Screensaver. Unpack and copy each file (4) to /usr/share/gnome-screensaver.

Set key "lock-dialog-theme" to "turbolence" on gconf, /apps/gnome-screensaver


so try that :)

I tried that, and it doesn't show up in the screensaver menu.

I won't, because it's not a screensaver. It's a theme for the password dialog that you get when trying to access the computer when the screensaver is running.
