Hit F1 for a start and also look into rendering your image out with a alpha channel.

You guys are mean :)

geminidude: as suggested you should go through the tutorials that come with max, they give a very good insight into all the basics of max and will set you up for whatever you want to do.

But to answer your question. add your background image to the environment slot (press 8 to open that) then give the chalice raytrace reflections then when you render, save the image as a .png file type and the background will be transparent automatically. If yopu didnt understand any of that, see above.
