    Full screen background + div in the center

    As you may see from the following image:

    I need to create simple intro HTML page with full screen background. That wouldn't be so hard if it could only be compatible with one resolution, but I really can't get it to be really responsive. On top of that, this page should be IE8+ compatible so I can't just use any CSS rules.

    There are basically 3 type of elements here:
    - background (blue lines) with dimensions 1920 x 1080, but I can adjust that in Photoshop since I have sources,
    - logo (which should always be positioned on top of blue lines as it is on sample image, but as of now I just merged logo on top of background so it's just one image in order to make easier layout, it actually can stay that way) ,
    - 5 small banners with HTML links (nice hover effect would be more than welcomed).

    Here's my code with more or less trial & error method, so there are probably better solutions:

    <!doctype html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <link href="index.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <body background="index.jpg" class="bg">
    <div style="outer">
    <div class="centered">
      <table width="200" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="50">
          <td><img src="icon3.png" width="168" height="128" alt=""/></td>
          <td><img src="icon6.png" width="128" height="128" alt=""/></td>
          <td><img src="icon4.png" width="168" height="128" alt=""/></td>
          <td><img src="icon9.png" width="128" height="128" alt=""/></td>
          <td><img src="icon5.png" width="128" height="128" alt=""/></td>
    @charset "utf-8"; {
      /* Set rules to fill background */
      min-height: 768px;
      min-width: 1024px;
      /* Set up proportionate scaling */
      width: 100%;
      height: auto;
      /* Set up positioning */
      position: fixed;
      top: 0;
      left: 0;
    @media screen and (max-width: 1920px) { /* Specific to this particular image */ {
        left: 50%;
        margin-left: -512px;   /* 50% */
    	position: relative;
    	margin:0px auto;
    	text-align: center;

    Are you sure you want an intro page as they are generally regarded as a bad thing?

    Regarding your mock up then these things generally throw up more questions than they answer but here's a rough start for you.
    (IE8+ only)

    The backgrounds are centred rather than scaling with the window although you could probably make them scale for modern browsers if you wanted but you mentioned supporting IE8 so they are best left centered.

    Of course there are a load of different ways this could be done depending on what comes next and on the exact dynamics required.
