How do you open folders in the same window?

I'm new to Linux and new to this forum so please bear with me.

Does anybody have a decent tutorial (that assumes no knowledge of Linux) which I could use to help me get used to the operating sysem? I have Fedora 4 installed. Also, when I installed it I installed every application it came with so even if you have something useful on individual applications would be appreciated.

Is it possible to set my system up that when I open a folder it opens in the same window instead of in a new window?

I pressume this is Gnome, and its spatial browser,

Run gconf-editor, and change /apps/nautilus/preferences/always_use_browser to true (I think, it was a while ago since I tried Gnome out.)
