Very simple instructions:

Download the style and unzip it onto your pc.
Open Blue Voda, go to Tools > FTP Manager.
On the right side, navigate to your forum/template directory.
On the left side, navigate to where you saved the style on your pc. Click on the name of the style (don't double click it) and then select "Copy To" on the toolbar up top. Sit back and watch the folders fly through the air with the greatest of ease.
Log into your forum's admin panel, go to Styles Admin > Add and install the new style.
Go to Forum Configuration and set the new style as the default syle for the forum.
Enjoy your new look.

On the right side, you're looking for the directory in which you installed your forum. It just depends on what you named it.

Hi Kad
if i am not wrong you are using another ftp client program. if you use BlueFTP which is come with blue voda, you will directly see your public.html and there is your forum/template directory should be.
