You cannot. Background images are not for content and thus users cannot interact
As Gary said, you cannot link a background image to a new page. However as
a work around, I suppose you could place a clearpixel or transparent.gif on
top of your BG image and link that "invisible-image" to a new page.

I did go back further in the forum and found a similar suggestion. So I created a transparent .gif, and floated it so it wouldn't interfere with an existing DIV. Linked to to the .gif, and voila, a workaround that actually worked!
Thanks Nancy and Gary,
Is it going to stay in the same relative place in different browser window
widths, or with browser text size preferences set differently?

I've only tested in IE 7 , IE 6 and Firefox 3, but it is working in all three of these.... same relative position
