If it's the only thing on the page, then use the CSS background property:

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body {background-image: url(myimage.gif); background-position:center center; background-repeat:no-repeat; }
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Absolutely:

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
div#myimage {
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
left: 50%;
margin-top: -40px;
margin-left: -100px;
}
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="myimage">
<A href="index.html"><img src="image.gif" width="200" height="80"></a>
</div>
</body>
</html>

The negative margins are 1/2 the width and height of the image.

You can use this code. It is simply a table!

<html>

<head>
<title>Example</title>
</head>

<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0" bottommargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" style="border-collapse: collapse" width="100%" height="100%">
      <tr>
            <td style="text-align: center">
            Place your image here, with the links and everything.
            </td>
      </tr>
</table>

</body>

</html>
