Sorry, I wasn't at all clear in my opening thread. What I meant was this: I have downloaded WN textures by Jon M. and the 737NG kit by him. The 737NG package is in my aircraft file. Within it, are the 2 WN textures (his instructions were to extract or copy the files into the 737NG file). That seems OK. The problem is that he said copy and paste the following (see below) into the aircraft.cfg file. Where do I find this file? He also said: change the x's to the nearest available numbers. What does this mean?
Here's what I must copy and paste into the aircraft.cfg file:

You'll find the aircraft.cfg file in the aircraft folder. For example the default B737-400, open up the folder and you will see a file called "aircraft". That is the cfg file. Double click it and then open it with notepad. He also said: change the x's to the nearest available numbers. What does this mean? This means look at the previous entry in the aircraft.cfg. At the top you will see something that says "[fltsim.0]" or "[fltsim.1]" or "[fltsim.2]". Basically all you have to do is put the number next to the flightsim line making sure it is one more than the last entry. So if your last entry is "[fltsim.5326]" make your new entry "[fltsim.5327]".
Make sure the previous entry is one less that [fltsim.32] so the last entry in the cfg should be [fltsim.31]. If there aren't any entries in the cfg make this entry [fltsim.0]. So don't replace it, just add another one below it.

This may sound stupid, but make sure in the FS9>Aircraft>B737_400 that the texture files are only one file deep. It's hard to explain, but if both those textures are in one file, and you threw that whole file in the B737_400 file, it won't work. I, likewise, downloaded some of those southwest textures, and I changed the cfg file as above. Then in my aircraft file, I have folders called: texture.cb (canyon blue), texture.sv1, texture.SVA, texture.TC1 (triple crown,) etc... now if all those were in a file called "downloaded SW planes" and put in the aircraft folder, it wouldn't work... sorry for the bad explanation, and if you already know all this... just tell me to shut up... .lol
