how to create a full length width navigation bar ?

I have already tried

background: url(images/navbar.png) top repeat-x;

but it still does not work. It still follow the width size. I would like a navigation bar that full length adjusting to the screen size.

set the image background on the div containing the menu, then the image will create a bar the width of that div. Putting it as background to the <ul> means it stops where the <ul> stops.

Well, if I define the width then it will grow as long as the width size. My point is - is it possible to create nav bar as long as the harizontal screen size no what the size is. Therefore, I probably don't need to define the width size. How ?

If I erase the ul and li I wonder why the navigation turn to vertical instead of harizontal? and also the navigation turn as long as the menu not the harizontal screen size.
