Cinder block walls-how to hang pictures?

My daughter dorm this year has cinder block walls. She has a couple of nice framed pictures that she really wants to take to school but I am not sure the best way to hang them. We of course can not drill a hole to use regular pictures hooks and I am not sure that the 3m command hooks will hold. I check 3m online and see that they have two types of picture hangers, but I have yet to locate them yet-that is my job for today! http://www.3m.com/us/home_leisure/command/products/picturehangers.jhtml

What is the best product to use for hanging on cinder block walls? I would think there were other products that we could use other than the 3m command hooks, although these seem to be what everone uses.

    They should stick just fine to painted cinderblock.

    pokey, at least one of my Ds has used those 3m hooks on cinderblocks with framed photos. She didn't have any problem with them.
