Well the only thing you need for a modal window is two divs, and outer div to make the page modal and an inner div to hold the modal content. For example

<style type='text/css'>
   .modalContent{  z-index:999; }
   <div id='hello'>
       <a href='#'>You can't click on me!</a>
        <div id='modal' class='modal'>
            <div id='modalContent' class='modalContent'>
               <a href='#'>You can click on me though!</a>
            </div> <!-- end modal content div -->
        </div> <!-- end modal div -->
    </div><!-- end hello div -->

With that said, if you know how to do all those effects in a modeless div then you know how to do them in a modal div. Just place the content inside the inner modal div (modalContent)

	<script type="text/javascript" src="modal.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.2.2.pack.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="ddaccordion.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
            headerclass: "expandable", //Shared CSS class name of headers group that are expandable
            contentclass: "categoryitems", //Shared CSS class name of contents group
            collapseprev: true, //Collapse previous content (so only one open at any time)? true/false 
            defaultexpanded: [0], //index of content(s) open by default [index1, index2, etc]. [] denotes no content
            animatedefault: false, //Should contents open by default be animated into view?
            persiststate: true, //persist state of opened contents within browser session?
            toggleclass: ["", "openheader"], //Two CSS classes to be applied to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively ["class1", "class2"]
            togglehtml: ["none", "", ""], //Additional HTML added to the header when it's collapsed and expanded, respectively  ["position", "html1", "html2"] (see docs)
            animatespeed: "normal", //speed of animation: "fast", "normal", or "slow"
            oninit:function(headers, expandedindices){ //custom code to run when headers have initalized
                //do nothing
            onopenclose:function(header, index, state, isclicked){ //custom code to run whenever a header is opened or closed
                //do nothing

<style type="text/css">
