I have a background image that's a gradient (lighter at the top that transitions to a darker checkered pattern at the bottom) and I want to repeat the darker section of the background image for as long as the page is.  What is the best way to go about this?  Thanks for any help.

As long as it is a solid color at the bottom, I usually make the background color the same as the part at the bottom.

With the checkered pattern you may have to just make a very tall background image.  I think one of my sites has one that is 2500px tall.

background: #000 url(/path/to/bg-image.png) repeat-x left top;

Where #000 is the bottom most color of the gradient.

Since you have a pattern, a solid color is not what you are looking for. Create a container div with 100% width and background set to the full height of the gradient with repeat-x. Then just set the background of the body to the full color pattern.
