Any idea how to set the default view on all windows to columns?

This is actually listed in robg's excellent Mac OS X Guide...

In the finder, simply create a new finder window, set it to column and without selecting or doing anything else, close the window.

Now every new finder window you open should be set to column.

Wow, that's the BEST tip yet for getting used to this, uh, less than ingenious "Finder" that we have!

Now, if only someone could come up with a way to change the SORT ORDER of things in the column view? You know, order by TYPE, and THEN by NAME, for example?????
