Hmm, depends.  If I understand your question correctly, you would like to change the color of the root window.  That's the window on which all your apps sit.  You can try this from, for example, an xterm

     xsetroot -solid black

to set the root window to a solid black color.  There are other options that xsetroot can take - see the man page for details.

If you have xv or xloadimage (xli), you can put a picture on the root window.  You can find these apps on almost any linux software site.

By the way, a reat page for getting the grasp on configuring fvwm is

    http://star.pst.qub.ac.uk/~imc/fvwm_config.html

Hope this helps.

Oh, I forgot to add, once you get the xsetroot command to do what you want from xterm, you can stick that line in your .xinitrc file (no need to add a & at the end of the xsetroot line).  Putting it in .xinitrc will cause it to take effect each time you start your X session.
