Windows 7: Changing Taskbar

Changing Taskbar

Hi everybody,

I just started creating Windows 7 Themes ( hoping to post my first theme and more here ) and I stumbled over one thing :

How can I change the Windows 7 Taskbar?

In detail :

So I have a fully registered Restorator 2007 and plus I already patched my Windows 7 so it can run and already has run 3rd party themes.
I want to know which file it is that I need to open with Restorator and which number of the bitmaps inside it that refer to both the taskbar and the button u click to open the start menu.

Oh, and I'm planning to replace them both with images.

So somebody please tell me which file and number of bitmap in that file are required to be replaced and what image dimensions it needs to be to function.

The start button bmp is kept in explorer.exe. 2 taskbar png numbers I know of are #839 & #840 (I'm looking at them on my desktop!!)
