Gnome themes

I'm having a little trouble attempting to install themes for gnome (gtk). I've
downloaded a few from gtk.themes.org. When I go to install them from the
control center it doesn't seem to work.

Here's what I do. In the "Theme Selector" I hit the "Install new theme..."
button. Then I navigate my way to the directory that contains the gtkrc file.
I select that file. It tells me: "Error installing theme: .../gtkrc Unknown
file format"

Obviously I am doing something wrong. I don't know what.

When I get this method working (with some help) does it make this theme only
available to the user who installed it? I am assuming yes. If that is the
case, how do I make the themes available to the other users on the system?
I.e. do I put it in /usr/share/some/path?

BTW I have GNOME from potato, and I've got the gtk-engines-* packages
