IE6 problem -- Can't type text into text input boxes that have background images

I'm having a problem with the text input boxes in my "Quick Reservation" form when viewing in IE6:

http://www.theseagatehotel.com/www.theseagatehotel.com/index.html

For some reason, .. I never see a cursor when I click on them, and I can't seem to be able to type any text into them.  Why is that?  Can it be fixed?  If so, how?

The only thing that's unique about the text input boxes is that they have background images specified.  Any thoughts?

That javascript error doens't have anything to do with the problem I've indicated -- since no javascript is being used to achieve that effect.

I have IE6 also and I can type into the input field.  However, looks like the background must not be set to no-repeat because the background is scrolling in IE6 if I fill up the field.
