I clicked on download, chose to save in the brushed folder in the location stated earlier, and clicked OK.

have you extracted the files? the folder is usually compressed like in .zip or .rar, extract them first and move only the items that have .gbr (gimp brush) to the brush folder of gimp.

Okay, I'll do that. Thanks for the help. Once I do that, is there anything else I need to do, or will gimp begin to pick them up?

EDIT
That did the trick. Thanks so much for the help :)

if you extracted the contents of the folder, make sure to ONLY move the .GBR files to the brushes folder of gimp. re-open gimp or just refresh your brushes. :)

edit: oh, why not make the guide a little more comprehensive such us extracting the folder first?
