First thing I'd do is find out if the CSS is visible to the world. Take 
a look at the HTML source that's sent to the browser. Find the .css 
line, and copy/paste the .css URL into a new browser window. If no page 
is loaded, then you probably either put the skin in the wrong place, or 
have the wrong permissions.
