If the picture.jpg is in the same directory as the skin.css file, you refer to 
it like this (for example) :

  div.siteheader { background: url(picture.jpg) repeat-x; } 

If you refer to the picture from the skin.tmpl template, you can use the 
variable $SkinDirUrl :

  div.siteheader { background: url($SkinDirUrl/picture.jpg) repeat-x; }
