The process is exactly the same regardless of your platform, and is detailed in the Knowledgebase article titled "How do I add a background to my greenscreen footage?", which is also linked in the Support FAQ at the top of this forum.

You import it, you add it to the timeline, you make sure it is below your greenscreen layer.

I do feel obliged to mention that Agent702 linked the same article, and beat me to it by several minutes. Glad you found it helpful though.
