Howto move borderless Eterm/aterm

hey guys,
I am running openbox on a debian unstable(SID) machine.
I use Eterm for my day to day console activities.
I like to have total transparency on the Eterm which means no toolbar,no scrollbar,no borders etc.The first two i can do without...but if i have no borders...i am not able to move the term position on the screen.
can someone tell me how i can do that?
I can use either the keyboard or mouse...I have a regular two button mouse with a roller.
I guess i can make a keybinding to move windows around but i was wondering if there is any generic way to do this....???

Not sure about other window managers, but a handy little thing in fluxobx is
hold down [alt] then click+drag the window.

yes, alt click and drag, to resize alt and right click and drag
