Is there any way to insert a background in a table. I´ve done it with IE and it works fine but on Netscape it repeats the background in each cell

I think it's a bug an here's how to fix it:
<TR>
<TD BGCOLOR="same color as in BODY">Here's the same background as in the rest of the document</TD>
<TD BGCOLOR="another color">Here's another color!</TD>
</TR>

I forgot to mention, that I want the table to have a background image. Is it the same procedure?

I don't know.
Try setting the background image in the cell where you want the image and set a background color in the other cells.

If this doesn't work you could create a small gif with the same color as the document. Then you use it as background image in the other cells.

That is a limitation in Netscape.  It will always repeat the GIF.  You could cut your graphic into pieces and declare eachpiece in the separate cells... Otherwise, it will always repeat...
Or, try this:

<TABLE BACKGROUND="gif.gif">
   <TABLE>
      Your table here... Maybe this would work...
   </TABLE>
<TABLE>
