Thanks for your remark.  It made me look.  Although I did not find the 
small x you suggested, I did then look in the view menu and found left 
and right sidebars.  You can remove a column by un-checking one of them, 
however, it does not remember that process.  It appears that you have to 
do that each time you want it removed rather than having it stay a 
default.  It would be nice if it way stay the way you set it until you 
changed it again as your choice.  I could lose the right sidebar 
forever.  I use the left though.  Strange!  I just returned to Dolphin 
to see my version and the right sidebar was no longer there, so I guess 
the un-check stayed un-checked.  My version of Dolphin is 0.9.2 (Using 
KDE 3.5.10).  Hope this info is useful.
