Showing Parent Folder Links

Hi, I'm trying to create/show parent folder links, similar to Yahoo! Briefcase. For instance, I want to show the links to the parent folders as I go to a main folder's subfolder and into that subfolder's subfolder, and so on. It should look like this:

All Folders > File Folders > thesis > tasks

<files under tasks here>
<files under tasks here>

How do I do that? I would appreciate any sample code you may have. Thanks.
