kde icon size

I like large icons on the desktop and when looking at files in a thumbnail view but I like small icons when I look at file lists. Is there a way to display file list in konkeror using a smaller icon size ? I can' figure it out ...

it's kde 3.4.1 that I am running.

I'm still just using KDE 3.3.something; whatever's in Debian stable. I find that it remembers icon size settings independently for "icon" view (thumbnails) and "details" view (file listing). With icon view, I use huge icons; with details view I use medium icons.

I just go to the View menu option for changing the icon size to what I want, for either view option. Those are the only two view types I use.
