    full posts or 'shrunk down' posts are the difference between using the_content(); or the_excerpt(); resp. in the loop.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_content
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt

    check you main page template (index.php ?) and locate the_content(); - replace it with the_excerpt();

    be aware that changes in index.php will go down all other templates according to the wordpress template hierarchy http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy

    always make a backup copy of your theme before editing

    Can also be done without code:

    Try the More Tag or Excerpts:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/excerpts/

    The links are to WP.COM but the software works the same for both flavors for these functions.

    Good Luck.

    You be welcome - I always like the simple no code solution myself.
