Can't find the "make background transparent" - Macromedia Director Basics

I've just upgraded to Director MX from using 8.5 I cannot find how I can make a text box background transparent. I know this has got to be easy, but I'm lost! I'll give kudos to the first correct respondant! :)...

    Select the text sprite. Press CTRL - ALT - S to bring up the properties
    inspector. Make sure u are seeing the "sprite" property sheet. You will
    see an "INK" parameter. Click on the combo and choose "Background
    Transparent".

    NOw, gimme my kudoz.

    I hope you mean that you upgraded to Director MX 2004 from 8.5. If not, and
    you literally "just upgraded" then you should be able to get MX 2004 for
    free. See the MM web site for details.

    Ok, I found that after about an hour of searching! Now, I have another
    question. I can't rollover the image and have it change like I could in 8.5

    Where do I create the rollover behaviour so that when the cursor is "rolled"
    over the image, it changes from one, to another, or at least allows the cursor
    to change!
