after I flatten my layers, is there a way to keep the background transparent?
I want to open the photoshop document in illustrator without having the white box around the image.

Try saving it as a Tiff? Or save it as a Photoshop file, Illustrator should open it, layers and all.Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!

Hide your background layer or delete it.... Merge visible layers.... then what I do if I did not start with a transparent file, is to copy and paste the merged layers into a new TRANSPARENT FILE.... then do a SAVE AS to tif, eps, or whatever.... if you want to save it as a web file or for flash.... I would sughgest png format.

thanks for the help. I've seemed to of figured it out. what I did was>merge all visible layers(except for the background layer),>command and click on the layer to select all>flatten image>command j>deselect> and then delete the flatten layer. this gave me the transparent background I was looking for.
