Nautilus file browsing with one window instead of several

Hello all,

I wan't to make it so that when I am browsing my file system in FC4 using nautilus that it opens in one window no matter which folder I click on vs opening a new window for every folder that I click on. Can you tell me if there is a way to do this? I checked in the preferences but I didn't see anything related to it. I simply just don't like having a bunch of useless windows open on my screen for no reason.

Thanks in advance
