Changing the look of the taskbar

I've only run the Live CD called Mandrake Move and I did successfully change the desktop wallpaper and the window borders. I was wondering if you can change the look of the taskbar. Like can you change the star which is the start button to something else? And like when you click on Konqueror there is a dotted black box that surrounds the icon. Can you get rid of that? I'd like to know this stuff before I install it to my hard drive. And what about the other icons on the taskbar? Can you change those too?

It's known as the Panel and yes it is configurable along with the icons that appear on it, you can also just leave your icons showing if you choose to make the panel invisible :-). As for the kicker button (the star you reffered to) I'm sure there is a way to change that also.

A great source for icons/png's is look under the objectdock messenger section. Theres tons of them. I too am looking for a way to change the "start" button. I have yet to find it but i have yet to really look for it as well.

Let me know if you find anything out

What about doing something about that dotted black box that appears around the Konqueror icon when you click on it. Can that be gotten rid of too?

Anyone know?
