Specifically, you should derive a panel of your own from the
Panel class. Then override the paint method to supply whatever
graphics you like. If you want to use show an Image it would be
something along the lines of:

class ImagePanel extends Panel
{   Image background;

    ImagePanel(Image bkg)
    {   background=bkg;
        return;
    }

    public void paint(Graphics g)
    {   g.drawImage(background,0,0,this);
        return;
    }
}
