That should be just "mypelt".

Note, if you are only changing the CSS then you do not really need to do 
this, it is only if you wnat to do some configuration that cannot be 
done in skinconf.xml. If you do go this route you should also copy the 
common skin accross to your skins directory, this prevents version 
conflicts with later versions of Forrest.

If you do find you want to do things that can't be done in skinconf.xml 
please put a feature request on the issue tracker. Some of our devs are 
designing an improvement to the skin system at the moment and your input 
would be very helpful.
