The url for the header background is simply /header_background.png

You can browse to it.  If you want to edit it, you will find it in the CRM as an attachment to a web file entity.  You can upload a new graphic using the CMS interfaces and selecting New File.

I insert a picture file to the web file entitity and did not show it.

At CMS interfaces I do not see the new file option

Yes, but once it is inserted properly in CRM, how do we reference it in the code to display it? While there are 4 sample files set up in the accelerator, they are not displayed. How do we enable & place these files on the page?

You don't need to reference any code to display it - simply add a link to the media (if it is a download) or use the url as a src for an img tag if it is an image. The CMS framework will automatically handle how to display/download the file for you. For example, if you upload a datasheet.pdf file as a web file that is parented on the home page, simply add a link datasheet to your page content. You can even use the insert-hyperlink wizard of the WYSIWYG content editing interface. Shan
