How to draw Aqua backgrounds like this?


Question

Can please somebody tell me how to draw a background like this? The gradient in the background is not a big deal, but the lines...

enter image description here

I guess it can be done in Photoshop or some other tool. Maybe there is a good "How to/Tutorial" somewhere?

Thanks in advance.
