I'm not quite sure what you mean here, but all the background images that I have used in my website are not square (mostly being 3:2 ratio). If you mean non-rectilinear, then I suspect not, since as far as I know all gif, jpeg, tiff, etc. files are rectangles.

You can fake it, of course, using The Gimp or Photoshop and making a border with an irregular inner contour around your picture. If you make it the same color as the overall background color that you set the theme, or make it transparent, people won't be able to see it.

Apologies for not being cleaer:

On this partiular website, my friend who I'm designing for, wanted something other than square/oblong/straight boxed areas for text, this link, shows the background image which wavy edges rather than a normal everyday straight edged box.

Is this possible to do something similar?

You can add any image you want, but the image will be in a rectangle box. You could use a png and make the outside transparent.

tlck9 -- I went to that site because you referenced it on your first post, and downloaded the background. It is a rectangular .png file with a transparent fill inside the wiggly border colored in and a thin transparent area outside, just as juggledad said.
