How to add image to page-preview

Hi,
My content pages use taxonomy for categorization. When the user-clicks on a taxonomy term, he sees all related pages. But I would like those page-previews to have an image, that is only shown in preview mode. Please advise. I have installed CCK.
Thanks,
Sina

It would be useful to see the actual page to get a better understanding for what's happening.

If you open the settings for the imagefield that you are using, and look under display settings you can set the image to be shown in the teaser. Does this help you?
Install CCK, Filefield, and maybe ImageField. Those page-previews are called "teasers" in Drupal. CCK lets you control which fields to show in a teaser, which to show on a full page, and which to hide altogether. You can find these settings at Administer > Content Management > Content Types > Edit "Your content-type-name" > Display Fields.

Ignore that link I posted previously. It looks like it uses the older Image module which is not nearly as powerful as the ImageField module.

Thanks, that helped. Both solutions are fine, but CCK is more flexible for my case

Oh man, I'm tired... Both are CCK, I meant Thomas explaining how to modify things to be shown in CCK showed me the way. But letharion, your comments are great as always. Thanks a lot for the past solutions and the future ones.
