Thanks, you are right. xli and xloadimage both display borders. It
seems that xloadimage has a onroot option, but I could not get it to
display an image with onroot.

I would really rather not install another windows manager on this poor
girl's computer, is there another option? I don't mind a GUI app if
need be, but I cannot find anything that does what I thought would be
a rather simple function!
