Active Desktop Borders in KDE 3.5.8

I'm looking for the feature where moving your mouse off the edge of a desktop switches to the desktop next to it. I think it is called active desktop borders. I know it is a feature in XFCE, and I thought it was also a feature in KDE, but I can't seem to find it anywhere in the control center of KDE 3.5.8.

Anyone know how to do this?

I got it worked out.

In my version of KDE, there is no control center option in the K menu. It was replaced by system settings, which doesn't have active borders options.

To open control center, I ran "kcontrol" and then went to Desktop->Window Behavior. Then I had to switch to the advanced tab to find the Active desktop borders setting.
