3D Background?

Forgive me, it's been a while since I've done 3D and I've never done it in 2007 before. Can't you apply an image to the background, so that when you render there is something there? For instance, I know I've made it so there is a sky behind my 3D models before. Can you do it in AutoCAD 2007?

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure about Acad 2007 but you will get faster replies if you post to
render/ walkthrough NG.

Never mind, found it.

For anyone in the future. . .You have to type "view" and then create a new view. Override the background and select the type as image and choose your image.

It's pretty annoying though that you have to specify the background for each view specifically. It was a lot easier in acad2006, but I guess that's progress ;-)

And the render/walkthrough NG, where do I find that?
