What do you mean by linked? Do you mean how to include the CSS into your HTML? or how to place a hyperlink inside a CSS file?

As far as I am aware it is not possible to make something into a hyperlink using the current version of CSS. This has to be specified within the HTML (or XHTML) file.

To include an external CSS file into your HTML simply place a "link" tag into your page's "head" section:
<html>
   <head>
      <title>My Page</title>
      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mysheet.css">
   </head>
   <body>
      ...
   </body>
</html

You cannot link an image using CSS. you need to specifically mention that in HTML or PHP.
You can give styling to the linked image like border through CSS. But linking has to be done in the page itself but not in the CSS.

Links can be styled using the following CSS:
<style type="text/css">
 
/* Make all links green */
a { color: green; }
 
/* Red when mouse is over */
a:hover { color: red; }
 
/* Red also when active */
a:active { color: red; }
 
/* Purple when visited */
a:visited { color: purple; }
 
 
/* Links with class="SpecialClass" are ornage:
a.SpecialClass { color: orange; }
 
</style>

Simply replace the Google URL with what you want from the source example #1 below.

However, instead of using "background-image", I would recommend using a proper image element, source #2:
SOURCE #1
=========
<div id="navigation" onclick="window.location.href='http://www.google.com'">
 
 
SOURCE #2
=========
<div id="navigation">
   <a href='http://www.google.com'><img src="yourpicture.png" border="0"></a>
