In IE5.0 links with "hasLayout" (triggered by any dimension, or float) do
not work over images. We tried to explain this in [1], [2].
The only workaround that I see applicable in your case is to use an extra
wrapper (may be a div) around the anchors, so that you move most of your
'gallery' properties to this wrapper, and leave just the border and the
hover effect on the anchors (the anchors must not get 'hasLayout', so no
float and no dimensions on them!)  Maybe there are other workarounds, but I
don't know.
Btw, I have an example of a thumb gallery here [3], probably too complex for
your case, and using the proprietary -moz-inline-box, but maybe you can get
some ideas.

hth,
Bruno
