anyway to open folder in same window in gnome?

is there anyway to open a folder in gnome without opening another window all the time? I want to click on a folder and use the same window instead of always opening a new window to that folder. i use fc3 and 4 btw.

You can also use the configuration editor. Go to menu->system settings->configuration editor->apps->nautilus->preferences
And select always use browser.
