I'm creating a View of staff profiles. It's a simple list of Node's Title filed (which happens to be the person's name. Instead of paging by number of items, I want to group them by first letter of first name. How should I start this?

And in case you are wondering where the Magic happens then you would find it in the contextual filter MORE options.
