If you open up almost any window in XP yo uhave the option to scroll the columns left to right.  These columns separate the:

       FileName               Size              Type                  Modified

What control allows you to do this?

I use the Menu control.  Here is an example that I use on a company's intranet page:

<asp:Menu ID="Menu1" OnMenuItemClick="menu1_click"  MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="4"  ForeColor="white" Font-Bold="true"
                        DynamicMenuItemStyle-ForeColor="black" StaticMenuItemStyle-HorizontalPadding="10px"
                        Orientation="Horizontal" runat="server" DisappearAfter="2">

Remember with this, you create your structure by using the Items.  Let me know if you have questions.
