<body background="images/back.gif"> and my back ground isn't working.  The location of the image is right, and i've checked the image and it works.  Why won't the background image display?

The green margin down the left?  Works fine for me.  What you may have been experiencing is the fact that Geocities has so many servers with so many web pages, that sometimes your images tak a while to be copied to all servers.  Thus, if you upload and the upload is successful, then you immediately check to see what it looks like, then you may run into innaccessible images.  I've heard a horror story of a demo gone wrong because it took 30 minutes for the image to show up, but for the most part they show up in less than 5 minutes.
