How to change fonts and background in a finder window?

I have searched all over the system (10.5.4) and can't figure out how to change the font that displays the text in any finder window.
I know you used to be able to change the background of any finder window too.
I must be getting old!
Any ideas?
I don't think you can change the typeface (at least not with 3rd party hackies such as what Unsanity offers), but you can change the typeface size. With the Finder active click Cmd-J (View->Show View Options) and choose a different font size.
Hope this helps
