Oh!  Folderview?  I'll have to look into that... thanks!

I still like to be able to drag or save files to my desktop while I'm 
working on them and then "file" them later and it's irritating (but not 
fatal) that dolphin does not allow me to drag a file to the desktop.  I 
suppose I'll adapt :-)

Also, my normal desktop is a "bar" across the top with frequently used 
applications and the backgrounded apps like truecrypt, update, volume, 
etc.  Then I have a thin bar across the bottom with the taskbar and 
virtual desktop pager.  In KDE4 I cannot find the controls to add, 
reposition, or configure the bars.  Am I missing a package perhaps?
