Darn, Flora beat me to it while I was doing my screenshots. But I shall continue anyway as this is a slightly different way to do it.

9. Do File -> Save for Web. Under settings, select GIF, whichever one of Perceptual, Selective or Adaptive looks best, check the Transparency box, whichever one of Diffusion, Pattern or Noise Transparency Dither looks best, and set the Colors to 64 (probably -- your image might do better with more or fewer colors). Then click on Save. (Screenshot 6 plus detail)

10. Final attached image shows transparent GIF produced in this way as it appears on top of a background pattern.

P.S. Flora's method is great but you won't be able to get the background pattern in the image to line up with the background pattern in your web page for all browsers, because they place the image in slightly different ways just to make your life difficult. It's up to you whether or not that bothers you.

P.P.S. Even Easier Method: change the background on your web page to be a singloe solid color

True, particularly if the background pattern is very geometric or with a very regular pattern ... In this case I tried it with both, Netscape and IE6 ... and it looked just fine... The .GIF transparency way will never give you a smooth 'vignette' transition as all options: Diffusion, Pattern or Noise Transparency result in a 'dotty' transition .... The only format which on Netscape looked 'perfect' is PNG-24, but its transparency was ignored by IE6
