How do i use the CSS background property to do this?

Hi guys,

I really need some help with a background on a website. You can see the image here:

Test Background
Now what i want is first of all to have the image placed in the top middle. Then i would like to have something like 10x250px (Width x Height) from the left of the image to be repeated - should a visitors screen resolution be wider than the image it won't seem like the site just stops at the edges.

I've tried several things, but it seems i keep running into different kind of technicalities that I'm not sure how to get around. So I would like to know how you would do it?

(The websites content will be 990px wide if that helps)

Here's how to do it.  And it will demonstrate one of the problems.  If the colors are not an exact match like you have with a gradient, you will see the line where the images switch.
