open nautilus in text mode?



Hi,

I've got a folder with 300K recovered jpegs that vary from teeny to several 
megs. I tried to open the folder with Nautilus and got a 10 hour delay and 
the whole display is so clumsy (slow) as to be useless.

I'd like to take about 1K of the biggest files and move them to some other 
folder but don't see how to do this with the icon view turned on. So.....

Does anyone know how to invoke nautilus with a details view rather than icon 
view? 

Or, does anyone care to suggest some bash command that would move the largest 
1K files to a new (specified) folder. Then I'd hope to be able to use this 
command repeatedly to get the files down to a manageable number.

Using F7.

TIA

Dave
