Custom folder icons in Dock?

    I am customizing my brand new iMac 24". Just switching from M$!

    I changed the default icon of my folder and I put it on the Dock. Everything fine, but the dock seems to adopt the icon of what it is INSIDE the folder, not the custom icon of the containing folder.

    I wonder if I can force Dock to respect the custom icon of the folder (when there are several documents inside the folder, Dock uses the standard icon - not the new, custom one).

    Any ideas?

    Right click on the folder in the dock and select "Display as folder"
