The simplest method would be to load the full size image using
height/width tags or css styles to display it as a thumbnail, and then
use javascript on the onmouseover to display a z-order div with the
full size image or portion thereof.

More elaborate systems would load the full size image on demand using
asynchronous javascript to save bandwidth and speed up initial loading

Flash would have additional mechanisms for doing this.
