jQuery slideshow and loading issue

I’m playing around with the following slideshow jQuery plugin:
http://plugins.jquery.com/project/sdSwitch

While I’ve found it easy to implement, I’ve found that the images you use for the slideshow all load up simultaneously, loading one over the other, until all the images have loaded and the dissolve/transition occurs. Is there a way to mod the code so that it will hold on the first image until all other images in the slideshow have loaded?
