I've been reading the information provided at http://www.alistapart.com/articles/mountaintop/ and it seemed very exciting to me because I would not need to keep multiple images for each color that I wanted. However, I can't seem to figure out how to create the mountaintop images in Microsoft Paint (that's the only graphic tool that I have) and get the colors to work. Can someone please tell me how to do this or send me images that I  can manipulate in Paint and still use the techniques described the the above link.

I don't think you can set transparencies and control them usign paint. you will need to use another graphics tool, download a trial for paint shop pro OR check out these other free tools:

Also you could look at the mountain top example source code and grab the images used there:

the images are:

you can't see them coz they are transparent. i just right clicked the corners of the boxes and did a 'view background image' in firefox.
