Trying to insert a background image

I have read post after post after post on different instructions about inserting a background image. I just finished reading one by Juggledad on "Make a scalable background image". I followed his instructions to the T... and I still cannot get a background image inserted.

I am using Atahualpa 3.7.7

My image is uploaded here: robcaldwell.net/webspace/siteapps/189628/htdocs/wp-content/images/bluebackground.jpg

My website is robcaldwell.net (still a work in progress)

Any help is greatly appreciated!

That did it! Thanks so much.

Now I have to figure out how to get the background image out of the body!

go to ato->Style & edit CENTER COLUMN->Center column style and set a background color.

Think of the page as a series of sheets of transparent paper on top of each other. If you don't want to see what is behind, you need to color that layer.

That did it! Thanks again!

I am not sure why this application is not more intuitive for me.
