Want Background to Show Up Only On Links

I am having a problem getting the background color to only show up behind the links. I would like the border color to show up to the right where there are no links so that everything is the gray color except for the boxes of white behind the links.

This is what it looks like now: http://forum.bytesforall.com/attachm...1&d=1279077934

This is what I would like it to look like (fixed in Photoshop not through coding): http://forum.bytesforall.com/attachm...1&d=1279077934

Any ideas?

Can you supply a URL? I think it has to do with default CSS that is getting in the way of the menu background color.

A quick answer would be to put the following in CSS Inserts.
HTML Code:
div#menu1 ul.rMenu {
background-color:#DFDFDF;
}
You may have to put !important after the hex for the color (#DFDFDF !important. There is probably another CSS entry with a background of "none" there.

Glad is worked.
One "suggestion" that I think would help is to change scroll to fixed for the background as follows.
HTML Code:
background:url("/wp-content/themes/atahualpa344/images/skewedcheckbg.jpg")  repeat fixed left top transparent;
