    On Windows, whenever I select more than one file, right click, and hit "Properties" I get one window, displaying the combined info of those particular files.

    ie: number of files selected, and their combined file size.

    on OS X Tiger -- I get 2 windows (and would get 20 if i selected that many)
    It also doesn't tell me the combined file size, only the amount of files selected, and available free space left in the folder.

    Is there a setting to change this? or am I stuck using alternative means to calculate file sizes?

    If the folders are in 1 folder then select the folder > cmd+ i = folder size

    (cmd = apple key)

    There is, but I don't remember what other key you do with CMD+I. Try CTRL, SHIFT, OPTION with it one at time, I know one of them does that trick.

    Edit: The key combo is OPTION+CMD+I That will treat the selection as a group, and will give you info about all of them vs. individual info windows for each item.
