KDE4.1. Anyway to show info when mouseover files/dir's on Konqueror

With Konqueror on KDE3 I could hover the mouse over a file, or directory, and 
a popup would show info for the file/dir, and at the same time this would be 
displayed at the bottom of Konquerors window.

With Konqueror and KDE4, the only way is to right click on the file/dir, and 
click on the properties.

I'm trying to resolve a java related problem with firefox, and many of the 
directories, and files are symlinks. Having to right click, then access the 
properties for each file/dir, to see where the symlink is pointing to, is to 
say the least a nightmare.

Is there something I can configure in KDE4, so that that the mouse over 
file/dir will display the same as on KDE3?

Thanks for any help.
