Getting SilverStripe up and running on your computer and on your web server.

I have started building a template and have the basics loaded within a Windows environment using the standard installation process for Silverstripe.
The basic template works and although it is a work in progress, it is starting to take shape.
unfortunately, when I moved the theme to a UNIX platform (dreamhost) the Navigation and Footer files are no longer loaded. I do have the basic layout working but the .ss files are not loaded.
Does anyone have any experience with issue? I have looked through _config.php, the Layout files and the Page.ss files but I cannot see what the issue is.
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
(New to Silverstripe but impressed with the ease of use)

I suspect it is also a bigger problem as I have tried a number of the themes from Silverstripe.org and most of them are none-functioning.
LayoftheLand, Andreas08 are two I have tried to no avail.

Could be a case issue (just guessing since I don't do much windows work these days) Layoftheland vs layoftheland. Make sure your theme names are lowercase, however your 'Includes' and 'Layout' folders need capitals.

I tried that option and even checked each of the entries. To make sure it was the same, I checked the Blackcandy theme too and it had the same structure and format.
thanks for the help.

Still no luck!
Here is some of the code...
<img src="/images/chapterlogo.jpg" border="0" WIDTH="120" HEIGHT="120">
<h2 align="center"> TITLE</h2>
<img width="120" height="120" src="/images/fmvlogo2.jpg" ALIGN="TOP" border="0">
<% include Navigation %>
<p align="center"> Lodge Finder </p>
<p align="center"> Upcoming Events </p>
<p align="center"> Login Screen </p>
Again, I have checked (to my knowledge) capitalizations and ... what ever else I can see.
What is surprising me is that when I download a theme from this site, copy it up, untar it (tar -xvf), many of them do not work.
My host provider is DREAMHOST if that helps.

Do you have a link to the actual site to check out. Is the html loading but the CSS not? Is the theme being set using SSViewer::set_theme() or via the backend?

I have tried both versions of setting the theme in the _config.php files as well as in the backend. At present, it is set in the _config file as well as being default in the admin area.
The following is the URL for the site:
The theme is under the /themes/tutorial directory.
Will, thanks for your help. It is greatly appreciated as I am getting to learn by experimentation too!

I hate to ask, but do you have any hints?
