Single entry for index.php more for category pages (5 posts)

    I am setting up a test blog with the latest nightly.
    I want to display only a single post on the home page (index.php).
    So far no problem, I just set the appropriate option in the user interface under reading.
    But I have setup my permalinks and .htaccess to call category.php when someone clicks on a specific category. It of course only shows the first entry. But I want it to show all of the entries (or maybe twenty or whatever).
    How can I do this. I don't want to use a plugin unless absolutely necessary. I am comfortable messing around with any tags etc.. And won't blame you if your advice breaks my test blog. :) Please help!

    This is the two day later bump.
    I have been searching and searching and cannot find an answer to my problem.
    Is no one replying to this because I over looked something simple and everyone is muttering "Idiot" under their breath?
    Or is this a complicated problem?
    Anyone?

    I had this same problem.
    i decided to create category.php files using the $cat=x code to display the correct category.
    and my index is free to be whatever i want it to be.

    I understand what you are getting at but I don't think we are thinking about the same problem.
    What I want is that there is only a single (most recent) entry posted on index.php. While the pages I have created to deal with category and archive stuff (category.php and archives.php, pointed to by options-permalinks/.htaccess) display ten entries and are paged. I have taken care the .htaccess rewrite rules and the paging.
    It is now just a matter of telling either the category/archive pages to ignore the 1 post per page (as set in options-reading) and display ten posts. Or setting post per page to ten and telling index.php to ignore this and only display the most recent post.
