Setting a different background for terminal(eterm?) and fluxbox


Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could tell me how, or indeed if it is possible to have a main wallpaper for fluxbox, and then a different image for a terminal that changes dependant on terminal location (i.e pseudo transparency, but with a different image)

I basically have a satellite composite of the earth during the day(earthDay.jpg), and a composite of the earth at night(earthNight.jpg)
and would like the day image as fluxbox wallpaper, and when a terminal is open, the background of the terminal matches the day image, but with the night image? I hope I'm being clear...

I'm sure I've seen it implemented before, but can't find it anywhere.

I'm running Slackware 13, Kernel version: 2.6.29.6-smp

Thanks

Achieved desired result by:

running eterm with command;

Eterm --background-pixmap /path/to/earthNight.jpg

And turning toggling 'viewport' mode in Background > Pixmap
