Simple question really, probably a registry hack but I can't figure it out.  How can I make it so Windows 98 is forced to display the contents of ALL folders opened in "List" mode instead of "Large Icons" mode?

Open a folder window and set the viewing options the way you want them for all folders. Then select View, Folder Options, and in the dialog box that opens, click the View tab. Click the Like Current Folder button, click Yes to confirm, then click OK. From now on, every folder window will open with these same View options already set
