CSS / DIV issue

I'm having some DIV issues with my CSS. Please help.

Here's an example of what my page is supposed to look like: http://thinkingdavis.com/review/NFFR/index.html
Note the 3 green boxes across the bottom -- each is a DIV with a background image and a DIV with text floating above it.

Now look at this page: http://thinkingdavis.com/review/NFFR-CMS/index.php
This version incorporates some changes I had to make to get my CMS to work. I needed to change each of those green boxes so that there's an image placed in the DIV (rather than utilizing a background image), then the DIV with text floating above that. This is where my stacking is messing up -- see attached screen shots.

Any help is greatly appreciated. This is what the 3 green boxes are supposed to look like. This is my latest file. Note the DIV with the text is breaking.

First of all, you do not want position absolute for featureBoxes

Next, you have changed align="right" to style="float: right" for div containing boxes 2 and 3. Align is not nice, but this is what you have got in the original design.

The last thing, make images absolute positioned (it made much more sense for them to be a background).
