Basically, you have to create a whole other page - same content, but with the new background. If your main page is say www.home1.html with background 1.gif, then the "Refresh" page can be www.home2.html with background 2.gif. You can also use this technique to create a slide-show effect, but you have to account for the download time of the image. The page will change regardless if the image is fully downloaded. That's the drawback to this option. I also noticed you use a fixed background. Remember, that doesn't work in all browsers.
You said not all browsers show the background as "fixed", well my question is... On those browsers, will they see "bgproperties="fixed">" written on the page somewhere, or will the words not show up, and the background just scroll with it? Does that question make any sense? If not, let me know. Thanks!
Browsers ignore attributes which do not apply. When they're in a tag, such as <BODY>, they will not appear as text on the page. However, if you're using a script in the <HEAD>, or anywhere else on the page for that matter, if the browser doesn't support it, odds are the script will appear as text. You want to place <!-- at the beginning of each script and --> at the end. This will make it invisible to older browsers.
As for your background image, if the browser doesn't support the "fixed" attribute, the image will merely repeat.
these all take two images and perform some transistions or fades etc.

If you don't have access to fireworks and the other methods mentioned don't work, then feel free to email me the image, and I will do it for ya. Only takes a couple minutes. :)
