I'm working with a temp sensor that varies resistance and I'd like to convert that signal to an LCD. The LCD needs to be 3 digits total. Any help or schematics would be greatly appreciated.

The simplest way is probably to use a micro-controller, read the value of the thermistor and calculate the temperature, then display it on an LCD.

PIC BASIC includes a command 'POT' which could be used to read a thermistor, or my Joystick reading tutorial at http://www.winpicprog.co.uk does a similar thing in assembly.
