Thanks Jarod

I wanted the isthmus osd in particular.. but it wasn't there.. and 
wanted a look at the MediaCenter one too..

I figured it out though (although quiet messily)

I downloaded the theme rpms from atrpms.. installed them.. moved the 
install dirs in /usr/share/mythtv/themes/<dirname> to the cvs/themes 
<dirname>.. ammended themes.pro to include it.. then finally make install..

now they are the menus.. :)

messy I know.. but its now nearly 5am.. and that was the only way I 
could think of.. lol
