Which desktop environment or window manager are you using?

Create another user account, see if that user has the same problem?

I shall not pretend to know what the problem is, but I can state what is supposed to happen. It has been a while since I used Gnome, but I remember, assuming you are using Squeeze with Gnome 2, that desktop settings has a section with available wallpapers. Any image selected as a backdrop is automatically added to the selection and stays there, until removed. When changing the backdrop, it is a matter of clicking on a different image.

That is how it is supposed to work. Why it is not? For now, try Caravel's idea and see what happens.

Check the permissions for the config files.

Go to System > Preferences > Appearence. Then pick the Backgrounds tab and then click Add to add a background to your system. Once you have done that select it and set it as your background. Now reboot and see if it is there when you restart your machine.

As for background slideshows click on the My Tutorials link in my signature and you will find your answer to that.

Check that the drive on which your new wallpaper exists is mounted at boot time.
Or keep your new wallpaper in /home/user/pictures.
