I found a couple texture presets here (http://www.simplylightwave.com/download_pages/type.mhtml?type=none&typeid=1), but I have no idea how to use them. What am I missing?

Download them and place them in your \Presets\Surface Editor\Surface Preset directory. They should then appear in your Preset shelf.

Double click on them to load them on to your surface. Make sure you have a surface selected in the Surface Editor.

O wow. I probably never would have seen that. Thank you. Also, what do I do with suface (.srf) files? Would I load them into the same folder also?

To use srf files you actually have to load them onto your surface. There should be a load button next to save and rename in the surface editor. What you could do is load the surface and then turn it into a preset. After you load the surface hit S on the name of the surface. It should then load it into the Preset shelf.
