Which distribution and what Dekstop Manager you are using (e.g. KDE or GNOME)?
Normally, right clicking on the Task bar gives you the "Properties" option


Hope this helps...

In the control center -> themes -> styles there is a tab for effects, then menu effects, this makes menus and the kmenu translucent.

as far as i know for redhat is that taskbar transparency worked for the keramik theme with kde 3.0.5 (redhat 7.3). taskbar transparency seemed to have been broken in kde version 3.1 up until 3.2. so you'll probably have to upgrade to kde 3.2 to take advantage of kde transparency support.
