There is no thumb used in the "simple" demo. The image field should be just
as in barry if you replied "y" when asked whether a symlink should be added.

The symlink links the images direectory to
the catalog directory. On a default RedHat 6.x system installed from
RPM it would be done with:

	cd /var/lib/interchange/simple
	ln -s /home/httpd/html/simple/images .

Probably the best thing to do to remove "thumb" is to change the 
preferences value UI_ITEM_FIELDS and remove thumb. I think the 
default is

UI_ITEM_FIELDS	description image thumb comment size color sku price weight category

Just remove the "thumb".
