Default Help with importing Alpha information into a .dat please

Ok i dont get what i'm doing wrong.
I've followed the exact directions on Ye old Grumpy Rarabs guide for using Graphics converter. I load the bmp & the alpha bmp into graphics convert, & the image information looks like i want it to (with the gray/white checkerbord at locations with the graphics alpha'd out). i convert this to a .dds file. & yet when i import the files (mqo, mcd, bmp, & dds) back into a .dat using the model viewer, all of the graphics i want alpha'd out, is still being shown.
In addition, i've tried using adobe photoshop. I've added an alpha channel, used the alpha information. In fact when i load the bmp into graphics converter like this all the proper alpha'd out checkerboard graphics is displayed properly, again convert to .dds file. Import to a .dat in model viewer, again all information/graphics thats supposed to be alpha'd out is still being shown.
Someone please tell me why the alhpa information never seems to make its way back into the .dat file. Thanks

Double check that the black areas of the alpha channel are actually 100% black. Sometimes graphics converter doesn't make it completely black.

Stupid graphics converter. yeah it was 22/22/22 rgb, paint bucketting it all to 0/0/0 did the trick. Thank you very much.
