Girls, I wonder if anyone can help me please?

In PSP, I know you can open an image say a small image, and you would like to use this small img to flood fill the background of something you are making.... make sense?

Can I do this in PS8?? I've been trying to figure it out for ages and it's driving me mad!!!

If you click on the gradient tool, right click on it and you'll see the option to switch to the bucket fill tool.

Yeh but I can't figure out how to flood fill with an image rather than my foreground colour. I'm not quite sure how to explain, does that make a bit more sense?

Oh, I see what you mean. Sorry. Hmmm, you can use the pattern stamp. You'd have to turn your JPG into a pattern. To do that with the JPG open, click Edit>Define Pattern. Then select your pattern stamp tool (right click on your clone tool) and just paint over where you want to see the pattern. You can also do a pattern overlay in the blending options area, once you've defined your JPG as a Pattern.

Let me know if that made sense and if not, I'll get some screen shots for you.

I'm not sure I understand, do you mean using a pattern of some sort to fill a part of the image?
