my guess is that he means he had trouble installing a _LyX_layout_  
for a LaTeX style file. That would be something the LyX-users mailing  
list can help with. As far as the LaTeX side is concerned, all one  
has to do in LyX is choose "Tools > TeX Information > Rescan" after  
installing a new package. The LyX layout files are additional "sugar"  
to help LyX act more WYSIWYG by adapting the screen display to your  
desired LaTeX style. There are many of them available, even for the  
beamer class. But it's true that by far not all styles have  
accompanying LyX layouts.
