Using 'featured image' functionality for custom meta boxes? (3 posts)

    I want to harness the power of the 'featured image' functionality for WordPress by having a few link buttons in a custom meta box and allowing users to add a few images inside that metabox to go along with their posts.

    I tried using another method of doing this (by calling the thickbox for image upload that is used on the Post Edit box) but it didn't work for me. Is there an easy way to add more of these 'featured images' to a post for use in other ways?

    Thanks in advance!

    UPDATE: I did find this plug-in: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multiple-post-thumbnails/ which mostly does what I want...the only thing missing is being able to add all of the featured image links into one meta box; but I suppose that can be customized if needed from this plug-in.

    How did you get this plugin to work? I have WordPress 3.0 and I can't get this plugin to work. When I go to add a new post or if I go to add a new custom post type this option does not show up for me. According to the screenshots you should see the ability to add more than one featured image on the right side no? I downloaded the plugin, uploaded it, and installed it and still got nothing. No support from the plugin provider either.
