Well, in reviewing the installation instructions on both of the links you have given me, I see that they're a little bit different. I followed the pagelines instructions and put the template in the bb-templates folder. I was then able to activate it from the administration dashboard. As expected, the header and color scheme, etc. for the forum were just like that on my blog.
In the bbpress instructions from your first link, it says to install the theme in the my-templates folder. I did not do this. I just looked in my directory and I actually have both bb-templates and my-templates. The my-templates directory is currently empty.
Could that be a potential problem?
