Yep. Find an icon you like (my favorite site for this is InterFacelift), once it's downloaded, ctrl+click and select "Get Info", click on the icon at the top-left, press ctrl+c.

Then ctrl+click and select "Get Info" on the folder whose icon you want to change. Select the icon in the top left and press ctrl+v.

Congrats! Your icon is changed!

Note that this only works for the one Folder you have changed. This does not do a system wide folder icon change. However, if that is what you are looking for, Interfacelift is a good place to start too. There are lots of these "face lift" packages for Tiger at least. I am not sure of the status of most of them wrt Leopard... I just haven't looked yet.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
