Way to turn .gif and .jpg into .ico files?

I want to make some of my pictures into icon files to use in my taskbar. IS there a simple way to do this? Thanks for any help.

In the past I have merely changed the extension from *.jpg to *.ico and it worked. Course the picture has to be resized to be really small!
