    Transparent Dock Tweaks in Leopard
    "Leopard Transparent Dock
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/itomi/1809486175/
    This guy's idea works. In addition, if you put the dock on either side, you can get rid of the white border by doing what he says for the bottom to the items right or left by changing names and replacing those items. See attachment screen shot...
    Regards, Fred"

    He sent a screenshot showing the transparent doc on the side of the screen (too large to post here).
