Look here on how to install the templates manually http://www.joomlaresource.com/Content_Management_System_Tutorials/How_to_Joomla/Manually_Installing_Joomla_Templates/

As far as zlib how did you install it? Its probably not compiled with PHP or apache.

What kind of hosting is it? Dedicated, VPS, Shared? And what are the specs. OS? any control panel?

that's the point, i didnt installl zlib, I took over maintaining the site and the person who did it befre me didnt install it so im trying to find out on how to do it. im pretty sure its a dedicated server. don't know the rest.

Well first find out if it is a dedicated server or not. Also find out if there is any control panel. If there is like cpanel, LXadmin, plesk, they have auto installers for things like this.

What component folder? You need to actually install this thing on the server under root.

there's no links, only shows main page. can anyone [dlewis lol] tell me how to add links or how to edit the template so those links pop up on it? i dont know php so i cant do anything haha.

thanks.

You need to find the place in all the template files where the line is you want the links. Since they split it up into many sections it shouldn't be too hard too find. Then you just need too put the code of the array of the menu in there. It may or may not work because the template file may not be loading the right scripts too pull in the meny so you may have to fix that too.
