Follow the instructions here and in the readme file.

Make sure you backup first because you are going to have to modify your aircraft.cfg file.

I think this is the file you're talking about.

Detailed instructions are included in the file named readme.txt but it all looks very complicated to me. Even with many years of experience installing FS addons I have problems understanding it. I no longer have FS2002 installed so I can't try it.

Might be an idea to try installing a few standard repaints first.

I have also had a look at this one. The general procedure of installing textures in any MSFS has been the same since before FS2002 - BUT!!

This one looks like a whole pile of effort - certainly not a user friendly file. I have installed and tested 1000's of files over the years. I even used to design the odd aircraft for FS2002 and this one looks like it would challenge me too.

If I were you I would just find individual liveries for your default FS2002 747 and install them. There should be lots available. (can't quite remember if FS2004 liveries can also be used in FS2002??)

Might save you some blood pressure!! :D
