Default X Desktop config

Hi all,

I was trying to figure out if its possible to embed shell scripts into your desktop in Xwindows.

Ive set up fluxbox and basically want to find a way to make a totally transparent window to run a shell script (something like)

ps -arcwwwxo "command %cpu %mem" | grep -v grep | head -13

or an actual script such as
#! /bin/bash

myen0=`ifconfig en0 | grep "inet " | grep -v | awk '{print $2}'`

if [ "$myen0" != "" ]
    echo "Ethernet : $myen0"
    echo "Ethernet : INACTIVE"

myen1=`ifconfig en1 | grep "inet " | grep -v | awk '{print $2}'`

if [ "myen1" != "" ]
    echo "AirPort  : $myen1"
    echo "Airport  : INACTIVE"
that basically displays my network info and similar..
