If I understand you correctly, you're running fvwm and want to paint the root
window with your .jpg when you boot the window manager.
I use fvwm95, but I suspect it's basically the same. If so, the best place to
put that command (and others like it) is in the ~/.fvwm/post.hook file. You'll
probably have to create it if it's for a single user, but there should also be a
system wide post.hook in the main fvwm directory (/etc/X11/fvwm ??). xli and xv
both work well this way, so I suspect that xsetbg will also.
