Desktop Transparency

How can I make the toolbars and windows in Gnome under RedHat 9 transparent? I've been searching in the forums to no avail.

Although it's great to have a feeling of company when down a lost road, if you have nothing constructive to add, please hold off replying until a constructive post has been made. The reason I ask this is because if you reply to someone's post before anyone else, they lose a 0 replies status. What that means is that if someone is searching for all posts with 0 replies, this one won't appear, and the only reply was "Sorry, can't help" which didn't help.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Thank You!
