Multiple Currencies and Custom Objects

Currencies are typically floated on an opportunity until it is marked as purchased, at which time the currency conversion is frozen as of the CloseDate of the opportunity.  We have a custom object associated with Opportunity (via LookUp) that has 3 currency based fields.  How do we freeze the currency conversion for those objects?

Found my own answer...

From the Summer '07 release notes:
Advanced Currency Management Considerations
• Dated exchange rates are used for opportunities, opportunity products, opportunity product schedules, campaign opportunity
fields, and reports related to these objects and fields. Dated exchange rates are not used in forecasting, currency fields in
other objects, or currency fields in other types of reports
