Topic: How to print pages with background images

I'm creating a document in MS Word 2000 and using PDFMaker (Acrobat 5.0.5) to create a PDF file. I'm printing to an HP Deskjet 990 Csi printer.
Everything was going well until I tried to add a background image to my document (to all pages after the first 4 pages). My document printed fine from both Word and Acrobat. I'm trying to add a jpg border down the left side of the page, kind of like I see in the Adobe Help file.
I added the image to the template page header in Word. It appears on the proper pages in Word, and prints fine from Word. When I create the PDF file, it displays fine, but I only get a blank page when I try to print a page with the graphic on it.
I then went and tried to print a similar (graphic on the left side) page from the Adobe Help file -- same problem.
What am I doing wrong, and what do I need to 'adjust' to be able to print these pages? Also, how can I enable recipients of my PDF file (with just Acrobat Reader) to be able to print it? (I won't know who they are; they'll download the file anonymously from the web.)
Thanks for your help.
