Joomla: Float Text over Image

I am using Joomla to design a website and I am having a problem with the placement of some text. I am trying to put together a template and I would like the text to float over a background image that only replicates down the page as more content is added. How do I sent the index file or CSS file to do this? Here is the link to the problem: http://www.cybernetiksolutions.com/westonburtband

You can set a background to only repeat down a page using

background-repeat:repeat-y;

in the CSS

The repeat is set on Y and adding the content and having the background replicate isn't the problem. The problem is getting the text to float over the image regardless of the screen resolution. As of now the content text floats to the left and scales with the screen. Check out the link and you will see what I am talking about.

P.S. I probably should have been more clear when I made my original post.

for starters you need to match the margins and widths of the div #body with the header and area with the image

so add the following to div#body {} css

margin:0 auto;
width:972px;

also you shouldn't name elements as tags it gets very confusing
