Its not difficult to install new magento themes,  but many of the people confused about setting default magento theme.

First – Let me explain, How to set any new theme as default theme.

e.g   The directory structure for magento templates and layout is  “app/design/frontend/” then there is package name “default” or “blank” or “anything you have as package ”
