Need Help with font-size


I'm quite new to linux. So, could You tell me how to change the size of the font which is displayed under the Icons on the desktop?
I'm not able to figure out how to do this for the desktop.

I use Suse Linux 8.0 with KDE 3.0.

The option to change the type and size of the font for the desktop should be in the control panel==>Look N' Feel section I always go through there with a fine toothed comb to get everything i want to look a certain way after a reinstall or new install etc...The control panel should be an icon on the "taskbar" or click on the "K" and click on it there...

8.0 is nice, man.

Or you could right-click on empty desktop> configure desktop> appearance.
