Hierarchical File Viewer? - Mac Applications & Software

Are there any apps that can browse and display files in a hierarchical view? Like, with a pane on the left showing files and folders and a main pane showing the contents of the current file? Ideally it would be able to handle many differetn file types, text, pict, jpg, even pdf... Looking for OS9 or OS X or both!...

    Isn't there a browse function in GraphicConverter that operates like
    this? (though it may or may not meet your specific need)

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I don't really have a filing system for my data. I keep all of the
    little articles and text clippings that I find on the web in one big
    folder with thousands of items! I keep PDFs in a seperate folder and
    images in another folder. Instead of sorting by file type I'd like to
    have a viewer that can handle any common file type and then sort the
    files in a more organized manner...
