Yes, but it must be done through FrontPage.
 
Open FrontPage and navigate to your site (http://mysite.sharepoint.apptix.net) and open the default.aspx file to the design view.

How do I create a new theme?
 
You can create a new theme and customize the selectors you want, and then apply the new theme to your site. That way, the site will have the general look of a SharePoint site, but with the modifications you want.
 
The way to do it:
  1. Open your site in FP
  2. Format | Theme
  3. At the very bottom of the theme task pane select "Create new Theme”
  4. You’ll get the “Customize” theme window
  5. Click on “Text”
  6. ...

Service Unavailable error when accessing site
 
We have created two sites, one of which is a document repository that has been used regularly for weeks.  While creating the second site (which only has one webpart that pulls in our ProClarity site's url), we can no longer access either of our sites and get a white screen that states 'Service Unavailable'.   This error also comes up when trying to launch the Administrator tool.

This is because the application pool in which SPS is running has experienced a few errors in rapid succession and has been disabled. to change this setting, go to Internet Services manager, expand application pools, select the one that's hosting SPSv2 (or WSS, whatever), and change settings on one of the tabs that pertain to error handling.

What I want to do is to modify the discussion list.

No this isn't due to the trial because I have no problems editing documents(word and excel) from another machine(except for Visio documents - I can download them but I can't edit them and save directly back to SharePoint). Also, none of the editing functionality works with Netscape 7.1.

AddUser not receiving email with password
 
I believe that this problem maybe as a result of the way that the email account for the site has been configured. If your site From address uses the same as your own email extension eg @someone.com then your own exchange may not accept it. Exchange maybe configured to stop other people sending email that proport to come from it.

View a Word document in sharepoint without opening locally in Word
 
Does sharepoint allow the ability to view a Word document as read-only right from the site? (as html without opening in word or as an embedded Word file)
 
I would like to be able to click on a document (under shared documents) and view it without the need to download the document locally and open it to view in Word.
 
I need the ability to do this from systems that do not have and cannot have...
