This code should work fine:
Code:
body
{
background-image:url('paste your image url here');
}

First off, the repeat command should only be used when you have a seamless tile to use as an image. Otherwise the background can become ugly, for lack of a better term. It repeats the image and as mentioned, if the original image isn't seamless then then the background looks like a jumbled mass of little squares or rectangles.

Second, knowing the right parameters for the full background image are essential, height in pixels and width in pixels.
What looks awesome on your monitor might look like crap on someone else's. Using a universal size would be a good thing as well so at least most people view the image at full scale.
