Question [fluxbox and slackware 9.0] Can't find the configuration ?

Hi there! (meh is )

Since the day I first managed to run fluxbox (It seems all so far back in history, those 24 hours :P), I would like to make my menu's transperent. according to the fluxbox FAQ --> , I should be able to set the menu alpha value in the configuration menu. But uhh... which configuration menu? ...
The first time I thought they ment the menu that pops up when you right click with your mouse, but there wasn't a menu alpha button there.
I need some help; many thanks in advance!

Thank you for your warm welcome
I took your hint and found my styles directory @
Next thing I did was to view the styles. The problem is they don't contain menu.alpha
Is it a matter of just adding it? I'm googling right now, but if someone has an answer, please let me know!
