How do you open folders in the same window?

I just installed Fedora 5. When I open a folder it opens in a new window. Could somebody please tell me how I set it that any folders I open will open in the same window. I know its simple to do as I did it before but it has been some time since I used Linux and am a bit rusty on things.

Double-click on your home folder on the desktop. Select menu item Edit->Preferences. Click on the Behavior tab at the top. Click the check box labeled "Always open in browser window". Close all open windows. Done.
