Calling Files

I went a head and created a child theme from the ol ComicPress setup, and I made copies of the header.php, index.php, style.css and menubar.php and I know that when I don't have them hidden inside another folder they wont screw anything up. Maybe I'm just not understanding how to call those files from a subfolder so that I can essentially overwrite their originals. I've checked Child Themes at WP.org and yet it looks a whole lot more confusing than I think it is. Does it take one line of code to call in each one can someone give me a direct and straight forward (with ALL the code - some sites like leaving vital code out assuming everyone is a WP guru) way off adding these specific files into my child theme?
