Go to the section called "InitFunction" (this is called when
fvwm is started for the first time); here you have to add a
line such as:

Exec "I" xsetbg /home/juanc/pics/talence.gif

The total section might look like this:

Function "InitFunction"
      Module      "I"      FvwmBanner
      Exec      "I"      xsetbg /home/juanc/pics/talence.gif
      Module      "I"      GoodStuff
      # some more stuff....
EndFunction

If you don't have xsetbg or you like to use something else,
use that instead. What's important here is that you know how
to execute this kind of program when fvwm is starting up.

Have fun,

Talence
