I too have had the same problem.  I beleive an older version of GIF is
required.  It's rather annoying since
I seem to need to use older GIF generators to create files I can use.  Also
the requirement to use only GIFS
seems to be true.  Bitmaps, JPEGs, etc. are no good.

It would be nice to use a AutoCAD generated floorplan as a background
without turing it into a hugh GIF file.
Computer Associates Unicenter can do that ...

Subject:  Background file

Hi all,

I've tried to create a custom background graphic in GIF format to put on a
NetView 5.1.1 (AIX 4.2.1) submap; when I go to Edit --> Select background
file, I can select the file I want through the 'Select' button, but when I
click on OK, I get the message "background file not found"; the file
permissions are correct.
Is it possible that NetView only recognizes certain GIF formats(!!!???) or
certain colors ...

Please advise.
