If you're familiar with XHTML (and obviously HTML) and CSS, what help do you need?
Simply add, in the CSS style section,
.. backgound url into the body style
.. background color into the 'text <DIV>' style
It is simply a matter of positioning that background image then moving the sliding the block level elements that contain the text into place. If you need to see how you can center the block level elements, as the background image will probably be centered you can take a look at http://bluerobot.com/web/css/center1.html
