Well I use a 20" flat panel monitor with a 1680 x 1050
resolution and the background image does expand all
the way to the right of the screen. You might want to
try clicking on the screen shot image provide so
you'll see it does expand.
With regards to creating a more flexible/liquid layout
I don't have a solution but I can recommend a couple
of articles (which I still need to read for myself)
on creating CSS based "variable fixed width",
Hope those can help.
