Take a look at the Javascript workaround here: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/bobosola/

IE 5.5/6 does not support transparent PNG. Suggest using a transparent GIF file instead.

DrNikon's link is a good solution.  However, if you ever use a png for a background image, then it won't work.  In that case, you can use this solution...
