Transparent textures in BMRT

I've got an rgba-tiff which I want to turn into a partly transparent
texture (still waiting for Rman companion in the mail). How do I do



1. transparent texture and texture inside a sphere

Dear openInventor netizens,

I have a few questions regarding using textures:

First, how does one apply texture to the interior of a sphere?  I am
thinking of creating a planetarium using star map as the texture.

Secondly, how does one create a texture on a transparent surface so that
the texture is visible on both sides?  One scenario for this is a painted

Thanks in advance,
