I would suggest taking a look at Eterm too. That is what I use 
exclusively for terminal windows. You can make transparent windows by 
specifying "Eterm -t trans", simple as that. The transparent windows 
seem to be more resource greedy, so make sure your box is not a 
weakling. My workstation is a oc'd celeron @525mhz w/ 128megs of ram 
and a tnt2 ultra video card. It does pretty well with all the graphic 
intense stuff. Ironically, I just took screenshots of my latest desktop 
that has Eterm being used in a couple different ways :). Look to the 
lower left for the transparent one (it's displaying /var/adm/messages 
via tail -f):
