Fortunately, the Mac does not have anything like the Registry.

Mac screensavers are applications, or sometimes applications with control panel interfaces.  You can launch the screen saver applicatino at startup by placing an alias in the Startup Items folder in the System Folder.

You can download Mac screensavers from the InfoMac archives.  One shareware Mac screensaver is MacDim, available at:
<ftp://mirrors.aol.com//pub/info-mac/_Application/_Screen_Saver/mac-dim-221.hqx>.  There are other screensaver modules in that directory < ftp://mirrors.aol.com//pub/info-mac/_Application/_Screen_Saver/>.

AfterDark was a popular commercial Mac screensaver, but it is no longer being maintained.  Darkside fo the Mac used to be a popular freeware screensaver, but it doesn't seem to be available any longer.
