    First, you need to have some experience with graphics and a decent graphics program.

    Second, you'll need a program called Windows Style Builder which you can find here: Ave's Windows Style Builder

    After installing WSB you'll have to import the msstyles file and export all the graphics associated with the taskbar (there will be quite a few), edit them (or make new ones) then reimport them into WSB
