Would I sound like a rank noob if I said, "huh", it's the one that comes up automatically when you run Amigo.

hmmm, i don't know what that is. does it have a lot of "Ks" around, with a taskbar on the bottom like windows, or does everything begin with "G" and there's a bar across the top like on a mac OS?

whichever one it is, you'll probably find some sort of control panel utility in the menus. just look for a "background" option. you might even be able to change it with the "fbsetbg /path/to/wallpaper.jpg" command (fbsetbg -h or man fbsetbg for options). you'd have to put that in a startup file somewhere though (.xinitrc, etc.) to get it to load every time with X.

Nope, not KDE nor Gnome. Everything's all X this, X that (xTerm, and similar). Not a hit anywhere about other in the Appearance menus, though there are two different choices for background image.

um, if you run xwmconfig from the Xterm, you'll get to pick your X window manager. Select The one called Window Manager, has some different themes to it by going down in the menu to Appearance

Already know how to flip through the menus. What I need to know is how to use original work as a background. Probably a hack of a config somewhere, but which one?

First of all there are several ways to get a background. One way is with the Window Manager.
Under Amigo and Amigo-XP the default window manager is WindowMaker. The ROX-Filer can also display a background.
Right click on desktop(appearance) for the WindowMaker window manager settings. right-click on a ROX-filer window and choose options to set ROX-contolled settings.

***or***

You can just right click any desktop icon and select 'backdrop' which opens a little panel that you drag and drop the graphic onto, instantly changes the desktop background. Discovered this by accident, and figured backdrop ***might*** mean background.
