Not sure what you're applying the background image to, but if you apply it to the body you should be fine, as it'll be a background image with all content above it. Find out what your maximum supported resolution is, and tailor the background image to that resolution. Then add the following:

body {
background-image: url(e:\bg.jpg);
background-position: center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: fixed;

Couldn't edit the post, probably as it's a day old.

Here's the code more concise if you're wanting the code to be nicer, and quicker to adjust:

body {
background: url(e:\bg.jpg) top center no-repeat fixed;

I'd also suggest rather than pointing to the image on another drive (assuming it is) you might want to move it into a folder more localised to the server/localhost. If it is actually in the right directory along with your other files, you don't need the full file path, you can instead just put the bg.jpg and it'll recognise it. That'll also be quicker than re-reading the drive. You can also use ../ for the browser to look for it one level above, if you decide to put it in a folder elsewhere. For example, if you had the page in a folder called 'pages' and the images in a folder called 'images' outside of the 'pages' folder, you could navigate to it by using ../images/bg.jpg.

Sorry if you knew that already, I just thought I'd put that all in just in case.
