Post Displaying Active Apps as icons on KDE Desktop and not in the taskbar

I would like to display my actively running programs as icons on the KDE desktop not as icons in the on the taskbar. Is there a way to configure this in KDE or perhaps install a package that will support this? I am running Fedora Core 5 with KDE.

I have found the "shade" function and this is somewhat useful but I would rather not take up so much desktop space when I minimize a running application.

what, exactly, are you talking about.

I know fvwm has a feature similar to this, you might want to check that out. but, afaik, KDE doesn't support anything like this.

You might want to check out some of the fvwm configs on their forum.
