You have already used the mouse properties capplet in the control-
centre? I think after that, you'd have to look at X set-up. Tools
for that vary from distro to distro.

That's the window manager you're using. I know enlightenment does
this. I think sawfish may do too. If it's enlightenment, there's
an enlightenment configuration app whose name I forget (long since
since I used it: sorry!). If it's sawfish, the configuration
options should be in the control centre. It is probably called
'balloon help' in the options.

This will depend on the window manager. sawfish certainly lets you
do this. I am sure e will do too.

Probably. I suspect this is window manager stuff again.

You could probably edit the gnome-applets Makefile to build only the 
multiload applet, which provides those. I believe they rely on 
libgtop, so you will need that. Another all-in-one monitor applet
is cpumemusage applet, but I don't think that does network monitoring,
so that is not so useful for you.

There are five clock applets. The default one comes from gnome-core
and is not very configurable. The background of that clock comes 
from your gtk theme, so mine is the same colour as the rest of the
panel: a pale blue like Mozilla's modern theme. The other clock
applets live in gnome-applets (or they do for Gnome 1.4 at least:
some rationalising has gone on for GNOME 2.0 :)). Some of them are
much more configurable.
