    Here's how to change the Dock from 3D to 2D. It is easy and it will be done thru terminal

    Requirements:
    -Leopard 10.5 OS X(Tested on this)
    -Terminal(Every Mac has it)
    -About 1 minute
    And to get the same look as mine:
    -"Bezel Style" Dock by Mitch Kramer, Found here
    -1 minute more time

    First, Paste this piece of code to terminal:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES
    
    (This will change it from 3D to 2D

    And then, when it's done (shouldn't take more then 2 secs), Paste this:

    Code:
    killall Dock
    
    (This will restart the Dock)

    And your done, it was that simple

    You should have something like this:

    (I have a themed dock and sorry for poor image quality)


    Now, if you want to change the "Theme" of the dock to the same as the one I have(The picture)

    As Quoted from LeopardDocks.com, Which is one of the largest dock sites I have ran into
