I'm not so sure if this is possible, you might search for transparent themes for xmms, as for GAIM I'm unsure. If you're looking for transparent terminals, I wrote a tutorial on that here.

check out this site
http://gentoo-wiki.com/Tip X11 and Tranparency
it appears to not be spelled right but that's how it is written, from a web page called Mandrake Linux tips for free

Not sure, I haven't set it up yet, just found that info while reading the configuration page at Mandrake Linux Tips For Free web site, which will probably answer that question.

PS. Scuzzman, glad to have witnessed your 1000th post, I just quit fighting with that 537EP modem of mine & hooked up a serial modem I've had hanging around for a couple of weeks now, an older 33600 but at least I'm not jumping over to Windows so much anymore, headin' to Oil sands tonight...latter.
