Sorry - the message bounced because the attachment was too big.  I've scaled

I think this is a distro-choice.  What you describe sounds like the default 
start-up screen in konqueror under 2008.1.  Does it look like the attached?

I presume that's in an rc file?  Where do I find the one you want?

I tried setting it to treeview then using the home link from the screen I'm 
showing you, and it worked there.  I think it may be either a version or 
distro bug.  Tell me where to find this [Profile] and I'll see what I can 
give you.
