Add this to config.php to define a
(:backgroundpage http://path/to/image/image.jpg :)
markup, which you then can use on any page:

Markup('backgroundpage', 'directives',
          "PageBackground(\$pagename, PSS('$1'))");

function PageBackground ($pagename, $arg) { 
        global $HTMLStylesFmt;
   $HTMLStylesFmt[] = " body { background:url($arg);} \n 
   #wikibody { background:transparent; } \n";
   return '';

This should work for the pmwiki default skin. Other skins differ.
You may still have the odd control like the searchbox without
background image. To get a background image applied to eveything one
needs to search out various elements and set their backgrounds to
transparent. You could add these to the function's $HTMLStylesFmt.
