I understand how the skins work, but can someone give me a short rundown on exactly how to go about packaging and replacing them? I've been trying but keep getting a myriad of errors.

Simplest way is to go in shell and do:
cp -a /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/[newskinname]

That gives you a full copy to work with. Then use a secure FTP program to download, edit, and upload, or edit in shell if you're used to that.

that seems to be better than just downloading one with all the symlinks?

So now that new directory... will that still have sim links to the x theme then? what does the "-a" deliminator do exactly?

Asking, becuase on my attempts... either my stuff has got overwritten when cpanel updates or it NEVER updates the inside pages or anything of my skin... which is the problem i'm having now...
