try putting 'xv -quit -root [imgfile]' in your .xinitrc or .fvwmrc (init section), that is, if you have xv. You can pass all kinds of switches to xv to perform nifty stuff like image tiling and mirroring. Just look up xv(1).

If you don't have xv you should probably convert the image to an .xpm (e.g. using xv :) and check out the manpage for xsetroot.
