    i know it possible to change the trash, and all the others but i tried the finder and i either made a mistake(cuz the way i know is kinda long) or the finder icon in the dock is just not changeable, like when the mac boings before startup?

    if it works anything like OS9, than all you should have to do is locate the Finder application in your HD and change it.

    is there a way I can make my Dock completely transparent except for the icons? i dont like the white bar.

    that is not true to change the Finder icon in the DOCK...any icons in the dock you have to modify HIToolbox.rsrc, then use the terminal to gain root access and switch the files around...it is possible to change the finder icon, i just spelled a word wrong when i got to the terminal part lol. i would post a screen shot but i have no where to store it...so if you really want to see it go to the first url in my sig, and look real hard at the dock when it loads. I dont know about the dock itself...i'll check that out.
