It says to put the media files that go with the sample into magento’s media files. but there are 2 media files. there is one at the root, and one inside of the skin’s theme. which one do I put it in ?

in the root. You can replace the ‘media’ folder or simply drag ‘catalog’ folder (and everything in it) into the media folder. Images that you upload from the admin all go to this place.

The one in the skin is best for presentational images you upload via FTP or placed as CSS background or inline images in the html code.  It doesn’t have to be called ‘media’, you can name eanything you like. Having a sub-folder in the images/ helps organize your files. This is extremely useful if store gets update frequently.
