how to add cover in epub

I am having a problem getting a cover image into an epub file.

I have added a book from an open office writer odt file.
Then I added a cover image and converted it to an epub

But when I look at the epub on my iphone there is no cover image, only a blue generic bookcover

Can anyone help?
Thanks

When converting your book, in the options under epub output, check the No SVG cover checkbox. I'm guessing your are using stanza ont he iphone, it does not support svg covers.
