does the mod have folders inside it like a Textures folder or is it just a .esp file?

first- download oblivion mod manager from tesnexus.com

second- read the readme.txt, I used to not read them either but it's not like they're essays like I thought, it should give you brief directions.

third- If the readme is confusing or sucks, put all folders that say textures/music/sounds/etc... into your DATA folder in c:/Program Files/Bethesda Softworks/Oblivion folder

fourth- put the .esp or .esm file into the data folder as well.

fifth- open OBMM (Oblivion Mod Manager), click utilities, Archive Invalidation, click on BSA-alteration and update now.

final- now start oblivion through OBMM or the normal way and see if that works.
