Can I have a fixed image above a set of changing images in a single div?

This task is above my knowledge level - I have found and copied some javascript code that allows me to do an automated slideshow of images within a div. I would like to be able to put a fixed image in the upper left corner of that div that is in front of the slide show images and does not change with them. If possible I would also like to put a selection of navigation choices in the top right of the same div.
My original thought was to have the images as background images, but I could not figure out how to get them to shuffle.

for the moment I have kept is simple with just three images shuffling.

      <script src="css/slideShow.js"></script>
        <div id="slideShowImages">
          <img src="img/multiethnicbusinessby-ambro.jpg" alt="Group of business people">
          <img src="img/cactussunset2.jpg" alt="Desert sunset pic">
          <img src="img/fortlowell.jpg" alt="Building">
        <img src="img/basslogov2.jpg" alt="Bass & Associates' logo">
        <p>header and backgroung images go here</p>            

I want the logo image to be fixed in the upper left portion of the header. I have not written the css portion of this yet. The slideshow works fine, just the logo image is below.

assuming header is your container/wrapper for the slideshow..try adding a class to your logo and then adding position: relative to header. Then position: absolute to the logo, which will reference the closest parents position: relative top + left position. Then we just say top:0, left:0. the z-index: will make sure it sits on the top of your sliding mages. if those sliding images have a z-index, just make sure the value (I put it at 10) is greater than theirs.

  <img src="img/basslogov2.jpg" alt="Bass & Associates' logo" class='logo'>
  position: relative;
header .logo{
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 10;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  margin: 20px;

Awesome, Thanks! I was missing the Z-index each time I tried it.
