Turn on floor and open up the Draw menu. In the front/back option, map your image to the floor so it appears behind your work. You can adjust the position of the floor relative to your object, opacity etc.

You should really post this in the ZBrush sub-forum so Informerman can see it. He's the ZBrush King here in my opinion, and he can explain things much better than I am able to. He comes in most days to help out.
I like to learn.
