<p>i've wanted this for awhile, just never put much effort into it.</p>

  <p>Moving the Dock to the top requires this Terminal command (assuming you don't find a GUI utility to do it for you):</p>

  <p><code>defaults write com.apple.dock orientation -string top</code></p>

<p>UPDATE: this doesn't seem to work in Leopard. oh well.</p>
