Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First, I've seen a few screenshots of people using windowmaker and somehow getting it to have kind of translucent menu's, not entirely transparent but with a gradient or an image on it.. You get the picture, I hope. Anyways, does anyone know how to accomplish this? (On Mandrake 9.1 if that would make any difference.)
Second, is there any type of true transparency for terminals? Not just using a background for the terminal background, but a true transparency? Using aterm right now and have been very pleased with it, but just as anyone always striving for more.
Third is icons with WindowMaker that automatically pop up in the top right hand corner. I'm sure there's some way to change what is brought up. I've tried right clicking them and then going to settings and changing them from there, but they always change back on a restart of WM, and also is there any way to add icons that will auto boot? I don't remember how I did earlier, but I got to the point of setting where it says "Start on Boot" for one of the programs, but it also didn't work upon a restart of WM.
i think the configuration for window maker is in your home directory under
what you edit in there should answer 1 & 3
as for 2 transparency theres alot of terminals with transparency
eterm for example
