first of all, emerge kdeartwork. it has nice themes.

secondly, to install a theme, do the following:

download the tar.bz2 or tar.gz

unpack it (tar -xvjf or tar -xvzf for bz2 and gz respectively)

then go into the newly created dir and do

./configure
make
and then use su to become root and type:
make install

it should show up in the list now.

hope this helps.
