go get wince cab manager, then open up any .tsk file using that program. a .tsk is really just a renamed .cab file, but designed for use in themes on a windows mobile device.

well, its not quite that easy. It isn't as blatently obvious if you do the wince cab manager route.

I would suggest extracting all the images from a .tsk (6.5 or 6.5.x for the version you want) and looking at the images.

The taskbar (yes is it is on top) cannot be themed using a .tsk file. You must overwrite .dll files (making sure they are signed first) with images you want inside of them. For this feat I suggest you go "find" restorator which can replace multiple images in a dll all at once. Here are some .dlls that you will find useful:

shellres.192.dll
outres.192.dll
tapres.192.dll
tshres.192.dll
notify.dll.0409.mui
VoiceCmdRes_PPC.dll
