How does one create (and save!) a new style sheet in Mathematica 8?

"Private Style Defintions for Untitled-1.nb" style sheet.

   3. Edit that popped-up style sheet.

   3. Use Save As to save that popped up style sheet under some name.

But this does not work in Mathematica 8: it does not let you Save As for 
a style sheet!

Another method was to begin by making a copy of Default.nb, edit that, 
etc. However, again Mathematica 8 does not allow a Save As on the copied
