Question No Photoshop Thumbnails or Previews with XP

Here's another question that maybe someone here can answer. I do a lot of photo editing and digital creations. A real frustration for me is that I can not view Photoshop thumbnails or photo previews (in filmstrip view) on Windows XP. Does anyone know how to get XP to show thumbnails & previews of files with Photoshop extensions? I think there should be a way to modify the registry so that XP will display these files. Anyone know how? I have Windows XP Home and Photoshop CS.

Yeah.... Photoshop files are big.... they save all they layers so you can go back and change the editing if you want to.

I looked on Microsoft's website, in the photography section, and it said these extensions are not supported. But I read in another photography forum on how to add a Nikon extension to the registry, so it could be seen as thumbnails and previews, so I assume the same thing can be done with Photoshop extensions. I just don't know how, and am a little leary of messing with the registry.
