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
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 ...
