I am creating a blog in sharepoint 2007 and i need to change the blue background that is standard on the masterpage. so far I have not been successful with this. I have read posts that say each individual class must be changed but that doesn't work. I would assume that it is one image in the background, does anybody know how I can go about doing this?

N.B. I am newbie to SharePoint and to programming in general.

Any help would be appreciated.
