Instead of using my xslt modification which needs more work, I recommend using the web parts from http://thumbextsp.codeplex.com/ which basically does the same thing. In addition it generates thumbnails for aspx pages. Xavier Vanneste did a great job on this project, and he was kind enough to allow me to contribute some as well :)
