Check out the bottom of this thread. The forum searches your keywords automatically, and has picked up quite a few scrollbar threads.

As far as I know, the only way to change the scrollbar of the browser to that degree is to install an XP theme, or window blinds.
You can, however, create DHTML Scrollers. However, these are inside the page and do not affect the browser scrollbasr themselves.

Changing the colors of the scrollbars shouldn' be any problem, atleast for IE 6.0.
This is what I used in my stylesheet:
I think thats all the attributes for coloring, play around with them.
I got no clue if/how to change the actual graphics of the browser's scrollbars.

Not that I know what I'm talking about......
but would it be possible to completely eliminate the scrollbar somehow? IE used to leave the shadow if a frame was set to "scrolling=no", but if more recent versions allowed it, then you might be able to set up an image map at the right hand side with the image of the scrollbar "fixed" as a background and having the page scroll as an "onClick" event.
It might be a feat of programming to have a slider scroll one way, and adjust it's size to page content, and have the page scroll the opposite way. I'd like to see it done (if it could be). It would make for some interesting possibilities.
I've always thought the scrollbar action was backwards anyway.
Food (bits and bytes?) for thought, anyway.
