Do you mean that you want html banners to show sometimes and an image banner to show other times?

If so, there are 2 ways:

1- Edit the billboard in question. Set the option to randomly show an ad block.
2- Add another ad block (so there are two in the billboard)
3- Set 1 addblock to pull HTML banners and the other to pull image banners.

This will randomly show HTML or image banners, however it doesnt use the 'weight' as the type is randomly chosen before this comes into play.

If you want to fully utilize the weight aspect, what I would suggest doing is this work around:

1- Set up your image billboards using HTML and make them HTML banners. Do this by simply copying the HTML produced by the banner and enter it into the banners HTML property.

I know neither option is ideal, but Im working on getting it there!

So you mean instead of setting the Destination URL and uploading the images you mean something like

Code:
<a href="http://www.url.com"><img src="http://www.image.com"></a>
and then just add to the default billboard each new add thats added?

Basically, the second option means that you will be telling GAB that your image ad is really an HTML ad. Therefore, what appears in the banners HTML setting is what will be shown. If you go down that route, you dont need additional ads in your billboard, just the single ad pulling HTML ads (since your banner will now be an HTML banner ).

Hope that helps make sense
