Whenever you use select * MySQL will skip using index. For more

I want to speed up a large query and I noticed if I do an:
Explain select * from LargeTable order by IndexCol1
it always has Extra "Using FileSort", which means it is physically
the result set.
I've tried different tables and sorted on different index columns, and
is always using FileSort.
How do I get MySQL 4.1.0 to use an index when sorting a MyISAM table?
Or is Explain broken and does it always report it is using FileSort?
