How to show cheapest simple product price on product list? As far as I know the values shown on product list are values taken from catalog_product_index_price.price and catalog_product_index_price.final_price.

It seems that magento indexes prices taken from the first associated product for a configurable product. How to override it to get the cheapest associated product instead of the first one?

I think this is what you are looking for

    $childProducts = Mage::getModel('catalog/product_type_configurable')->getUsedProducts(null,$_product);
    $childPriceLowest = "";    
    $childPriceHighest = "";    

    foreach($childProducts as $child){
        $_child = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($child->getId());

        if($childPriceLowest == '' || $childPriceLowest > $_child->getPrice() )
        $childPriceLowest =  $_child->getPrice();

    echo $childPriceLowest;
