Hi,

you have the image immediately after the table.

You can add the background via style attribute in the body or table tag - depending or where you want the background:

  <body style="background-position: 0% 0%; background-image:url('relativepath/imagename.gif'); background-repeat:no-repeat; background-attachment:scroll">

or

  <table border="1" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2" style="background-position: 0% 0%; background-image:url('relativepath/imagename.gif'); background-repeat:no-repeat; background-attachment:scroll" width="100%">

Url could be

  url('filename.extension')

if the background picture is in the same folder as the HTML file, or something like

  url('aaa/filename.extension')

if the background file filename.extension is in the subfolder of the folder where the HTML file residues, and its name is aaa.

What does the % sign mean in the below part of your answer:

 <body style="background-position: 0% 0%; background-image:url('relativepath/imagename.gif'); background-repeat:no-repeat; background-attachment:scroll">

Try following combinations instead of 0% 0%:

50% 0%0% 50%50% 0%
Do you see :-)) ?

Instead of 0% 0% can stay 0 0 (in pixels) or top left, but I had something else in mind...

More about background positioning you can find on the page http://www.w3schools.com/css/pr_background-position.asp.
