Do you mean you want to create a dock using LXPanel? If you do, the following screencast explains how to do it:

Also, from the PCLinuxOS article LXDE: Configuring LXPanel:

Panel Preferences > Advanced > Properties
Quote:
Make window managers treat the panel as a dock: when checked window managers will see the panel as a dock and not a window. It will not be displayed on a list of open windows (e.g. the Alt+Tab window switcher) or the pager.

Actually I was just wondering if it would change features for my LXDE/Openbox desktop.

Nice tutorial despite it seems 'as a dock' option is activated from the start & unexplained...

LxPanel isn't shown @Alt+Tab already,but Ressource Monitor. So clicking 'as a dock' will remove it from there.
