If you can edit the CSS you can do something like the following,

Code:
body {
 background-image: url(path/to/image.jpg);
}
There's other properties for the background to position it as well that you can find at the W3 Schools web site.

Save the image as a JPG or other web format in photoshop.

In Dreamweaver go to:
Modify > Page Properties

Then select "browse" under "background image."
