keeping a transparent terminal in the background


Ive looked for hours and cant seem to find an answer...

I've gotten eterm to be borderless, menuless, and transparent, but i want it to be always behind other windows so that its kind of like part of the desktop. Like when i click it i dont want it to be brought to the front and cover other windows. Is this possible with eterm and if not is it possible with any other terminal?

Im running KDE 3.2 on Suse 9.1 Professional. Im willing to switch WMs if i need to in order to get this to work.

Activate the window menu (Alt-F3), select Advanced, then Keep Below Others. I just tried it and clicking on the eterm, doesn't raise it above other windows.

Borderless is easy:
Activate the window menu (Alt-F3), select Advanced, then No Border. Menuless ???
