How can I specify which image I want to represent a stack in the dock? I seem to remember reading recently that there was a way to do this, but I can't seem to locate the info.

To get the image of the folder, just right click (or Control + click), under the Display As tab, choose folder.

If you want a different picture at the front, keep the "Display As" as a stack, and add an icon to the folder named something like '0_Stack' so it appears first alphabetically in the stack.
