I have always used tables in dreamweaver and want to start using layers or div as I think they are called now. I am having trouble getting concept; basically what I want to do is a new webpage with everything centered contained in what I would ususally use a tablle for but want to now use layers or what ever they are called. can someone tell me how to start. I have the basic layout the way i want it with

<div id="main">
<div align="center"><img src="images/background.png" width="1039" height="1000" /><br />
but now I want to add more layers and when I do it doesn't move with the original layer. and layers i am able to resize but not div's I am very confused and frustrated.
