Where are my added Photoshop brushes? ?

Where are my added Photoshop brushes?
OK here’s the deal. I went to and downloaded my brushes. I open the .rar files with my winrar and extracted the files to my desktop. I then went to my computer, c drive, program files, adobe, Adobe Photoshop CS3, present, and brushes. I added my brushes. The files are there but when I open up photoshop cs3 the brushes wont show as an option to use. What am I doing wrong? I am new to photoshop I just got it yesterday actually so I will need a step by step on how to fix this. Oh yeah I even shut Photoshop down completely and reopened it and still no luck. HELP!?

Brushes made in Extended usable in Non-Extended?

This might sound stupid, because I’ve never actually wondered about this before, but say I have Adobe Photoshop CS3. Someone makes brushes (or some other type of resource) in Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended. If I download those, will they work, because they have the EXTENDED version? I know they are same version, but I didn’t know if that made a difference.

Thanks in advance 🙂
